Michael Edwards



To make a wish don’t travel far

and never wish upon a star

for they have points

which poke the joints

and enter places quite bizarre.

    Oh loll good write and pic M.
    Miss Berles got any stars named after her?

    • Michael Edwards

      Not to my knowledge O but I'll ask her.

      Limited number of orifices available, Michael...but corr... the picture you provide on the packet don't half make one ache....

      • Michael Edwards

        I'm told Anusol works wonders - must get some. 😁

          Noted. Diarised for 2030 and review.

        • dusk arising

          He wished upon a wishbone
          wanting not to be alone
          his wish came true
          he's got a silly moo
          and all she does is moan

          he wished he'd wished upon that star
          cos he'd rather he'd wished for a red sports car
          it could come true
          either red or blue
          to rush his wife to the abbotoir

            So quick - I've gone all limerickless now - where did I put the thinking cap?

          • Fay Slimm.

            Ha - - - good one again Mike - - Super image that adds its points to your limerick- fun - - and I will stop star-wishing from now on.

            • Michael Edwards

              There's a song about that - won't get the tune out my mind now.

              the awkward depth meaning hidden in these words
              has a prerequisite of aged life experience, I think..
              or maybe that's just me
              (I'm still chuckling btw)
              thanks Michael

                I can see a great cartoon here - might draw it sometime - thanks LB.

              • myself and me

                Love your limerick. It was such a joy to read them.
