I must not cut my nails in the evening

Warns my  elders which sounds threatening

It is an unfounded fear

You’ll be penniless my dear

So why  take a chance after knowing the meaning!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this very interesting poem. Superstitions are everywhere, in every culture. It seems we humans will go to great lengths to keep away what we fear.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. I enjoyed the rhythm and rhyme of your limerick. I enjoyed the content even more. I was not aware of this superstition. But I have my own. I knock on wood for good luck all the time. Thank you for this verse!
