Limericks

For my Off The Record  WRITE OFF group today, we had a lovely time reading some Limericks and then having a go at writing our own…Here’s a couple of mine:

Limerick The First (based on our weekly rubbish-collection annoyance):

A couple on Johnny Ball Lane
Are wading through rubbish again:
     They open their gate
     And both get irate,
Saying: “It’s the EU that’s the blame!”*

*NB: this is a joke, to try and alleviate some of the horrors of the current Brexitocalypse we’re experiencing.

Limerick The Second (see image above):

A jovial collosal squid
Got upset when everyone hid:
     As it reached for the sky
     For an eightfold Hi Hi!
The pirates looked less intrepid.
