Don’t Try This At Home: A(nother) Limerick

Belinda Blande was an Olympic Class bore
Whose monotone chatter made Norman’s head sore.
Even in bed, with all limbs gyrating
Her passionate cries, he found enervating.
So he covered his head and pretended to snore.

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.

    “An Olympic class bore” is not something you want to see on your headstone.

  6. Haha, Geoff. My limericks in my kid’s books are a little different to yours.
