Hoarding…. #limericks

‘It‘s a risk,’ said the serial hoarder,

‘That I may cause civil disorder

By buying up Frosties

And making you crossties

So I’ll probably stick to cornflakes…’


To hoard takes three things: there’s pluck

And a significant dollop of luck

But between me and you

On top of these two

Is you really must not give a fig (other soft fruits are available until some silly sod has bought them all)

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.
