Expletive Undeleted?

Perhaps that limerick I finished would work better without the profanity and a few other words I used. You judge:


Heading home through a thick, thickety thicket
got me a dadgummed low-speed, speeding ticket
for driving too slow,
so I floored it to go,
and flew faster than lickety split it!

You can see the original profane word a couple of blog entries back, one of those "expletive-undeleted" cases in which the speaker regrets having spoken what was spoken by the speaker. Kind of like in the sentence preceding this sentence that I am right 'now' writing . . .
