When You Don’t Pay Your Bills

Norris Bonge, a builder from Penge

Wasn’t paid for installing a henge.

He turned to the Druid

Saying: ‘My terms are quite fluid,’

As he peed on the stones in revenge.

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.

    Loved it Geoff!

    A P.C. by the name of plod
    Was such a pedantic bod
    Norris’s sprinkling sent him into a rage
    He noted it down on his page
    Then called Norris a dirty sod!

    I can honestly say this is the first limerick I’ve read that rhymed with ‘enge.’
