[fifteen minute limerick] what can you come up with


HGF has issued a challenge for us all to come up with a limerick. Let me spice that up a little with a fifteen minute time limit.

This is my first humble entry [please don't laugh it to scorn until I'm well out of range].

'Twas once a famed blogging maid,
Quite shy and a little afraid.

"A limerick? Oh no,
I couldn’t do so,"
Yet finger to keyboard she laid.

This blogger accepted the call

To "set pen to paper" ’n all,

A limerick to write

In the space of one night,
Hoping the thing should not pall.


Her intellect - sharper these days

She applied in particular ways;

By dawn’s early light

Her limerick a sight -

She submitted it to people's gaze.

Go to it rightly and may scallops rock yer tadger!

"There once was a lady from Wales
who upped and set off with red sails,
She found a Med isle,
thought "Here I will while
away all the rest of my days."

boom-boom!

Well done but I will pass on the prospect of any scallop being anywhere near my tadger!

Got more verses now!

Great stuff, Welshcakes - I'll be into it.

Jams - that's too wise.

A blogger by name one James Higham
made posts that too often went by 'em
One might well suppose
He could temper his prose
With ideas that might easily fry 'em.

Act in haste, repent at leisure!

On rereading I see that I should have written:

A blogger by name one James Higham
makes posts that too often go by 'em
One might well suppose
He can temper his prose
With ideas that easily fry 'em.

At least now it is a limerick.

HGF - thanks.

William - brilliant and it goes straight into my testimonials.

His Girl Friday said...

and well done, William!
