That Limerick Time

A comic, when young and quite green
Thought nothing of being obscene;
But a life so splenetic
Can become quite frenetic.
Sadly his act is now clean.

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.

    Yep, going for the lowest common denominator will only get you so far … in anything really. 😀 … excellent wordsmithing. 😀


  6. Haha, Geoff, well done and I love your bushes. I can’t remember what they are called when they are carved like that.
