Michael Edwards



An eccentric repairer called Mel

with a very diverse clientele

started to swear

when he couldn’t repair

the horn of a cow so he gave it a bell.

    Love the cartoon.

    not as straightforward on 3rd read (indeed, we should all have a car park for our thoughts, maybe then we wouldn't end-up imitating herded cows: gift wrapped with our bowties of bells),
    insightfully clever and as deceptively witty as ever!

    • Michael Edwards

      Thank you so much.
      Cars deserve their own car parks where they can go to exercise their motor skills even have they to book in advance.

      A creative artist called mike
      would cycle to work on his bike
      the air it inspired him
      the exercise tired him
      relaxed he created his likes

      Celebration was often overdue
      when Glenit created things new
      though progress was steady
      the world was unready
      for the things his inventions could do.

      poetically inspired by day
      sometimes he had nothing to say
      so he adopted the model
      where one simply writes twaddle
      and by george made his poetry pay

      I find limerics just too tempting and have to contribute

          Ever beyond me limericks have always tickled my fancy - such a clever one today Mike.

          • Michael Edwards

            Gee thanks Fay - go on I bet you could write some great ones.

            That's why cows have bells?
            Clever chap Mel

            Thanks Michael
