Poetry? A limerick? Does That Count?

Esther Chilton prompts limericks on her blog, here. This week’s prompt was moan and this is what occurred… Make of it what you will…

After an epic Kardashian moan,
The devil turned Kim’s buttocks to stone.
Being no longer callipygous*
She became quiet religious
And joined a convent so as to atone.

*in case this is a bit obscure – callipygous: having or pertaining to beautiful buttocks, easily one of my favourite words

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.

    Ooh I do love a good limerick. Here’s mine (inspired by you, obvs!)

    An insecure woman named Joan
    Was invariably having a moan
    Yet her bod was callipygous,
    And her voice was mellifluous,
    So why did she constantly groan?
