Stolen Rhymes #limerick

Limerick prompt is steal

If ever you hear ‘It’s a steal’
Said with a tad too much zeal;
Consider a second thought
Before this bargain is bought:
The seller may well be an eel.


Some think there are kisses to steal,
And they can still cop a feel.
But believe such tripe
And they are ripe
For someone, their testes to kneel.


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.

    Well done. My grandson just had his first experience with an internet scam of shorts that seemed a steal. We did all laugh when he opened a pair of very small see through gym shorts. Not quite what he had purchased.
