      I agree with you 100%. Definitely not one of his better offerings and there have been some classics. This isn’t one of them.

    Ha!! First limerick I’ve loved in a long time!! Nice
    Good luck to them, from what little I read of them, they seem well suited – damn them but they’re a gorgeous couple too

    You don’t need a comma at the end if a line if the sense doesn’t demand it. More importantly, you’re killing your punchlines with loose scansion. Try “Him, I’m certain he would have picked you.”

    It’s really worth the effort to get these things right. So much of the comic impact depends on the meter that you hamstring yourself from the start if it doesn’t flow true. It’s a particular shame here, because this is one of the better ones.
