Michael Edwards






There was a young lass called Meg

who mistakenly sat on an egg

but the weight of her bum

caused the shell to succumb

and the yolk ran all down her leg.

    Oh lol good write and pic M. In one church (men in suits, not robes), there were some back rooms. Some men were actually ironing clothes ready for the service. The cartoon is not so far-fetched! lol. Not heard of Meg Berles. Was it her?

    • Michael Edwards

      Her brother lives on a demolition site - Rub Berles - know him?

      • orchidee

        Well I do now! We know Ram Berles too. And now me next poem - 'Snooker is just a load of Berles' - Woof! Have to mark it 18+ says Fido.

        Good one Michael, the yolk is on her!

        Those cassocks need a great deal of ironing.

        • Michael Edwards

          Not sure it really happens in church but it happen on cricket pitches at the crease. lol

              • dusk arising

                A mental picture suddenly flikkers
                of egg yolk all over her knickers
                and the yolk down the leg
                of lovely young Meg
                brought a race to everyone's tikkers
