Do-gooders? Pah! #limerick

‘My life’s so dull,’ said Sir Galahad,
‘Being seen as good is driving me mad.’
‘All of this adulation,’
‘Has given me constipation.’
‘In future I will present as a cad.’

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published three anthologies of short stories and a memoir of my mother. More will appear soon. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame.

    What’s that sir have you gone mad
    Good’s synonymous with Galahad
    Don’t be such a prat
    Be it damsel or cat
    Like prince charming you’re toast of the nation
    Take heart your the sum of your own creation.

    Love your Limerick inspired me 💜🌹
