Divine Limerick

Esther’s latest prompt is Study

After years of study, wise men opined
There was no proof that God was benign.
‘It would have been easy,’ those boffins said,
‘To put the arguments completely to bed,
By showing how to turn water to wine.’

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.

    Blasphemously, one has to wonder sometimes whether He’s checked over His plans…

      I know; I also think he’s avoided some of the modern regulations ensuring food safety. As for building a world in seven days, the inspectors would have conniptions.

    Haha brilliant. I believe Tim Martin has the secret, or perhaps that’s just watering down the wine.
