Thursdays bring you the chance to share a short verse on a topical subject. It could be a haiku or a limerick or a sonnet or a free form of your own choosing. Your aim is to entertain those who follow this thread.
Keep it short and light. Good humour and even a little naughtiness are encouraged.
Post your efforts in the comments on this post and please feel free to comment on and appreciate the contributions of others.
Personally, I love the style of Stanley Holloway, Max Miller, Paddy Roberts, Noel Coward and Flanders and Swan. Who do you enjoy?
To start you off, here’s a limerick that I wrote in response to a recent news story.
I entered your narrow, tight passage
In my ship far too big to manage.
Now I’m blocking the way
And I can but pray.
For to sail back out will take courage!
I look forward to reading your submissions. Have a go!
