Oh Nurse! #limerick

This week’s prompt is nurse. It put me in mind of a classic seaside postcard from my youth

‘It’s hardly surprising’ said doctor to nurse
‘That the poor died with a rant and a curse.’
‘The instruction was clear: prick his boil.’
‘Not soak his todger in a pan of hot oil.’
‘I think you’d better go fetch the hearse.’

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.

  6. Oh my. I sat crosslegged as I read the Limerick, and I don’t even have boils to prick.

  7. I must be honest, Geoff, I’m not a man but I shudder at the thought on your behalf.
