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)
