Miss Quoting #limerick

Sometimes the prompt is just too hard – quote

Some people who you’ll find quoting
what clever people have wroting
Think themselves smart
But they’re just a pain in the art
And deserve to receive a good boating….

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.

    So many famous quotes are misquoted . I suppose like language they evolve to suit circumstances.

    I agree, some people think they appear smarter when repeating smart words of others but don’t even understand the meaning.

  6. Since I don’t know what good boating is I substituted bloating and I agree.

    Haha, Geoff, a tiny bit of poetic license here.
