Coff #limerick

This week’s prompt is cough

‘You really sound terribly roff,’
‘With that persistent, rattly coff.’
‘I’ve made you a coughin’
‘To carry you ough in,’
‘When it all becomes more than enoff.’

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.

    Love this not a hundred miles from what Dad used to say to anyone coughing : It’s not the cough that carries you off it’s the coffin they carry you off in! 😀😀

    Cough was a rough prompt – it just is so hard to rhyme! It should be ‘cuff’.
