Limerickery…

I thought I’d write a few more…

When Percival Troon ate a curry

His bowels turned good food to slurry

With indecent haste

He began to lay waste

To Hampshire and large parts of Surrey

*

Last night, to the sound of a groan

We knew footie wasn’t on its way home

We’ll just have to wait

By the Praetorian Gate

As the cup spends its next years in Rome

*

Prince Charles, on a visit to Wales

Was persuaded to visit the sales

He bought some new suits

A pair of dragon-hide boots

And matching top hat and tails.

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.
