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 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.

    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 💜🌹

    And so the pure must also be constipated?
