A Seattle Limerick
‘Single man with toilet paper seeks woman with hand sanitizer for good clean fun.’
An old hooker who lived in Seattle,
Developed a cough with a rattle.
Yes, she had caught a chill,
And began feeling ill,
And soon knew she was losing the battle.
So she took herself off to the docs,
Who gave her the worst of all shocks,
When he said to her, “Dear,
It would seem to appear,
You’ve contracted a dose of the pox.
If you do not want to be dead,
I suggest you spend less time in bed.
It’s all much too risky,
So when you feel frisky,
Take one of these tablets Instead.”
Masterful! What is it Roland about that rhythm that jig that makes the humble limerick so powerful?
I appreciate your comment, Nigel, particularly coming, as it does, from a known expert in this poetic art form.
