Draining Goodwill #limerick

Oh my, this week’s Limerick promptdrain – has sent me down a ubend.

Some people will always complain 

If having felt the need to strain 

You’re in a bit of a rush

To drain with a flush

While people are still boarding the train.


I heard my plumber explain

To my wife, what was up with our drain:

‘You’ve a problem with faeces

Which will only increase if

You let him go again and again (and again)

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.

  1. It’s OK to flush whilst the train is stationary. We had a meeting last night and the committee passed the motion!

  2. There seems to be a psychological overlay in this one, but I can’t be certain.

    I am pleased to see that when it came to limericks you felt the need to have a number two today.

    And the alternative is pain so by all means avoid the stain, do not refrain and use the drain.
