Limerick Selection (sure fire winner)

It's no laughing matter - think green

There was an old woman from Leeds
Who swallowed a packet of seeds
In twenty-four hours
Her head sprouted flowers
Her feet were covered in weeds

I hope Neil's not looking as I made a spelling mistake so had to delete that first comment. With regard to transparency I had to leave 'this post has been removed by the author' else the punctuation police will be knocking on my door. They are very punctual.

Well, I was saying that Patient Speulation have a much better version of the Limerick, so go and take a look. It has asterisks so you can change the words to make the poem as innocent or racy as you feel. I must admit two words keep coming to mind when I read it but I am not brave enough to post them here. It's not quite past the watershed and Mary Whitehouse would be turning in her grave.

Hope you enjoyed my Limerick selection.

Ok, Neil, I give up. The police have been round after noticing a missing c (from speculation). It must have gone on the run because they found it hiding in my loft (behind the Xmas decoration and an old tv). This is like George Orwell's 1984, except I'm Winston Smith. They done that good cop bad cop routine hoping I would crack.
I told them straight: 'No comment!'

Heh! Good to see you are on your toes!

I'm not necessarily punctuation or spelling police, just potential for misunderstanding police :-)

Keep it up.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for your comment. I hope you don't mind me and my silly humour. I just like smiling at myself. Words are certainly open to interpretation and I have little doubt I need someone to keep an eye on the blog.

Pleased you take my silliness in good heart as it is always said tongue in cheek.

Thanks for taking the time to add your comments.
