Limericks: Those Awkward Rhymes

This week’s prompt is ‘church’ from Esther

When an ascetic churchwarden, called Bunt

Found out what they’d done to his punt

Which was covered in baubles

He said, ‘Bless my corbels;

Whoever did this must be some sort of an artist.’

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.

  4. When it comes to limerick time
    it is prudent to carefully rhyme
    I admire your pluck
    in avoiding the muck
    but it could’ve been really sublime
