A Thought… #limerick

The Right Reverend Dean of Dundalk

Liked to help newly weds with ‘The Talk’.

‘Now don’t you go bragging,

For a weekend of shagging

Will leave you both unable to walk…’

Seriously? Is that the best you can do?

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.

    Is that Dundalk, Co Louth? Oh…I remember so well doing the pre-marriage course for my first marriage back in 1992. I hope it has changed a lot since then! (Love a good Limerick)

    Perhaps it’s better you didn’t take up a position in the church.

    It is a real thing called “honeymoon cystitis.” I have no idea how I learned that.
