Driving You Crazy #limericks

This week’s prompt is Drive and you have two treats…

When asked why he’d demolished his hive

The bee said, ‘I was told I needed more drive.’

‘It wasn’t for money’

‘Nor extra honey.’

‘I was stung, more dead than alive.’


‘It’s easy,’ said murderer Clive

‘Once my victims are no longer alive.’

‘I grind them to mincemeat’

‘Cover them in concrete’

‘And roll them flat, as part of my drive.’

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.

    One question: Is Jimmy Hoffa in that driveway? I can fill you in if you don’t know of Jimmy Hoffa!

    Haha. I have a friend called Clive. I’ll look very carefully at his drive next time I visit!

    It turns out that Clive’s driveway is mysteriously a favourite meeting-place for the local carnivorous wildlife. 🙂
