Dead Certain #limerick

Esther’s prompt seems to bring lout the worst in my limericking. This week’s word – Whiff – is not exception

‘It wasn’t the smell,’ said Belle, a bit sniffy.
‘He’s always inclined to be a bit whiffy.’
‘I realised he’d died,’
‘When, to my surprise,’
‘I found he’d developed a st*ffy.’

Oh please… you are such an embarrassment…

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.

  2. He said it was plainly absurd
    that the dog when decanting a turd
    created a pong
    broke into song
    and then gave his human the bird
