Limerick time

Now, the rules are – basic limerick form, last line allowed to be out of order, current affairs is the field.  One or five I whipped up:

Known to many as Tessa
A rotter her party confess ‘er
Loved only by Don
They pretend to get on
But actually he can’t stand the sight of this bint

Sparkle failed in LA as a cutie
After making downpayment of booty
She wanted a Brit
Saw this redheaded git
And thought ah, I could do with a bit of that, I could

Spice Girls, it seems, were quite bad
Audiences hissed but at least were quite glad
Posh couldn’t be a**ed
“It’s all in the past
Besides, I want ’em all worshipping me, not them.”

Director of Bond took a walk
The launch no one’s topic of talk
All the issues do rankle
Craig D broke his ankle
Time to give it away, methinks

We’re pardoning many said the Don
But first they gotta do wrong
Quite easy with Flynn
And those GIs are in
But let’s see Clinton beg on her knees

Over to you, citizens.

        But it’s not rude really – the original went . . .

        There was an old man from Nantucket
        Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
        His daughter, named Nan,
        Ran away with a man,
        And as for the bucket, Nan took it.

    Brennan and Clapper and Comey
    All 3 of ’em really are phoney
    They cheated and schemed
    And Donald has dreamed
    They all finish up hanging in Gitmo

    Enters the canon.

    Chuckles supplies:

    30 days hath September, April, June and November.
    And all the rest have 31.
    Excepting May which has 3 long, dreary, tiring years.

    Seemed to me that the limerick form with the free-form last line was an effective way for budding poets to do it – not terribly difficult to construct one.

    To The Sturgeon . . . .

    There was a Scots lassie named Nicola,
    Who said, “I am best perpendicular,
    But if what you want’ll
    Be best horizontal,
    I’ve never been very particular.”

    A dismal PM was T May
    She nattered and dithered all day
    She then got the hump
    When given the bump
    And blubbed in public.

      2runtherace tweet [@ 17:33 above] wasn’t the one I intended to post. Ben Garrison’s tweet with the cartoon was intended. Glitch in the works – brain freeze 🙂
