Bridport & District

At Home – Limerick Club

Pollution is spoiling the air,
And doubtless we ought to take care;
It goes in when breathing,
The scientists are seething,
And our health it is bound to impair!
(CD)

Pollution is spoiling the air,
sea, land and just everywhere.
Wordsworth said it would,
Trump denied it could,
Now we’re trapped in a real night-mare.
(JG)

Pollution is spoiling the air,
In Chideock more so than elsewhere.
The people turn pale
When they try to inhale.
Deep breathing? They just wouldn’t dare!
(AF)

Pollution is spoiling the air,
Specially above grand-dad’s chair,
Thick with Marlboro’ smoke,
Makes you really choke,
Marlboro’ country’s sure gone elsewhere!
(JG)

A girl who was normally sensible,
Did something quite incomprehensible:
She stripped herself bare,
In Bucky Doo Square,
Which the magistrates judged indefensible!
(AF)

"The time has come," the PM said,
"To talk of many things:
Of test - and trace - and self-isolate
The NHS App and 'pings'
And why you must all Stay Alert
And whether SPADs* pull strings."
(AR)

  • Special Advisers, e.g. Dominic Cummings

A suggested first line for next week is as follows:

The wonders of nature abound

But remember, you can choose your own topic, and it is nice to have local references where possible.You can choose your own topic, and it doesn’t have to be a limerick as long as your verse is not longer than six lines.
