Sweet Caroline

Here lies Carolyn Candy
Always sweet, always randy
All who knew her
Thought she was dandy.

Witty Epitaph writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a short, humorous epitaph for the tombstone of an imaginary person.


Note: Carolyn was a prostitute in the red light district of Amsterdam all of her adult life. She had lots of regulars (mostly diabetics) who were addicted to the signature candy canes she gave to every john as a parting gift.

This contest called for humorous epitaphs, preferably rhyming. Fictional characters, four to six lines only. Autor notes could contain two sentences describing the person - occupation, location, time period, etc.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
