Limerick of the Week

With all this talk of Webb v. McGowin, I have decided to post this attempt at a Webb Limerick, even though I am not yet satisfied with it.  As always, suggestions for improvement are most welcome!

While giving the pine block a toss,
Webb spotted McGowin, his boss.
As preventing the harm
Cost him a leg and an arm,
The estate must extinguish Webb's loss.

I go to Valpo Law where Prof. Telman teaches. I do not have him as a prof but my girlfriend does and she says that he is a total crack up and that he has NUMEROUS limericks.

Maybe change "Cost him a leg and an arm" to "Cost him both leg and arm." Might sound better with one less syllable?

Hmmm. Perhaps "Cost a leg and an arm." Six syllables, two stresses. Seems about right for a Limerick.

Thanks for the input.
