Paying Bills--By Jack Clubb--United States

Paying Bills

A woman in Beverly Hills
No longer could pay all her bills,
So she sold her best cars
In two splendid bazaars
And now drives a Hyundai for thrills.

Jack Clubb has had short stories published in publications such as Black Creek Review, Coffee-Ground Breakfast, The Magic of Words, Northern Stars, Opinion Magazine, Rockford Review, Sunrise, The Taylor Trust, and Voices From The Valley. He has also had several hundred poems published in the United States, the United Kingdom, and India. Jack is grateful every time an editor gives one of his poems an opportunity to sing or gives him the opportunity to tell a story as he writes feverishly from his century-old house at the foot of the Silver Lake Hills in Los Angeles.


  1. Jack, I loved your limerick! In fact, limericks are my favorite poetry form. This is not only a good one but very timely for these days when money is so tight. Good to laugh at the situation instead of stress. Thank you.

  2. Dear Jack -

    I just sold my ermine. (kidding) Great poem.\


  3. Light and airy - giving one a good laugh about a sad situation! Way to go...

  4. LOL Many drive Hyundais because the price is lower. You gave me a great laugh today. I love limericks and this one made me laugh out loud. Wow! I'll have to be watching for more humor from you. Making someone laugh is a special gift. Best wishes, Carolyn Devonshire

  5. Dear Jack,

    Thank you for all the lovely comments you sent for other writers today. Not only are you a talented writer but one that supports and encourages others too. Thank you for sharing this poem with readers. It sure gave me something to chuckle about. Keep your talented pen flowing!
