Most people will know of limericks. For those who don't they are 5 line humourous poems rhyming aabba.
There was a man from Dajeeling
who boarded a bus bound for Ealing
It said on the door
don't spit on the floor
so he stood up and spat on the ceiling
The aim here is to construct a limerick one post at a time.
You are only allowed to contribute one line per limerick.
Whoever finishes one provides the first line of the next – maybe put a line of dashes and a couple of blank lines to show its a new poem.
You may wish to avoid the Young Man from Buckingham.
