Within five minutes I had written a limerick based on the prompt.
Where the inspiration came from, I don't know. Where the ideas came from, I don't know. Suffice to say, an original glimmer of possible rhymes for lines 1, 2 and 5 of the limerick (care, hair, stare, bare, pear, pair and fair) morphed into the poem below - I hope you enjoy it:
When Mary was youthful and fair,
at her hourglass shape men would stare.
But as middle age bloomed,
her figure was doomed,
and now she resembles a pear.
