Being Frank (and other disguises) #limerick

This week’s prompt is cross

I’ve been described as quasi posh

Which has been known to make me cross.

It’s time to put this thing to bed

And reinstate my lost street cred.

‘I’ve lost the title and sold the hoss.’


When I was accused of penning dross

I have to admit, it made me cross.

I might have eased my consternation

Had I asked for an explanation.

But, being frank, I couldn’t give a toss.

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.

    You posh? Nah … perhaps a dandy who’s handy or a toff who’s really a puff! Cute!

    Change ‘Had I asked for an explanation to ‘Had I not had severe constipation”. Constipation always works!
