Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
If this doesn't kill ya, that will
"Why Rus ?" by Praveen J.
Rus the sailor was a sport
Had much fun at every port
In Rome he met Lydia
Who gave him chlamydia
In Hamburg he got a rash
From a biker with moustache
He'd still be around
Instead of underground
If the waitress in Barcelona
Hadn't given him the Corona

Writing Prompt
Write a short, humorous epitaph for the tombstone of an imaginary person.
Witty Epitaph
Contest Winner

Author Notes
I have written this epitaph for a sailor named Rus who clearly lived a rich life. I heard his family lament at the funeral, "Why Rus.....Why Rus?"
