I sure am prolific! I wish they were terrific... (More Limericks)

In response to a limerick writing prompt from Mad Kane.  This week's opening line is,
A fellow (woman) who'd stepped on some toes...

A fellow who’d stepped on some toes,
Confessed to his spouse of his woes,
“They think I aint sweet,
But I just got big feet!”
“Oh, yes! And a really big nose!”

A fellow who’d stepped on some toes
Received a big punch on the nose.
In business folklore -
As in love, or in war -
Things get bloody, and anything goes.

A woman who’d stepped on some toes
Recorded the shrieks.  Recompose
This tape helps her now:
When she’s down somehow,
She plays it, and blooms like a rose.

A fellow who’d stepped on some toes
Tried super hard not to disclose
The steps that he took,
But he was on Facebook,
And so the whole world knows.

A fellow who’d stepped on some toes
Retorted, “How else you suppose
A loser like I
Can ever get by?
Grow up! This is life, and its prose."

A woman who'd stepped on some toes
Found it hard to maintain a cool pose,
When youngsters galore
Got a foot in the door,
Whereas she got veins varicose.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
