Michael Edwards




Young Reginald had a large nose

On which birds of all types would repose.

This at first he enjoyed

but he soon got annoyed

when they crapped down the front of his clothes.

    That's always going to be a problem, Michael.

    • Michael Edwards

      Bat's are an even bigger problem - especially the guano on the top lip.

      My first smile of the day, thank you Michael.

      Oh lol. Nose as big as a bird's perch!

      • Michael Edwards

        Quite useful but you do need a large hanky.

        There was a young Girl from Divizes
        Whose EARS* they were different sizes
        One was so small ~ it was no use at all
        But the other ~ it won several prizes
        *Could be FEET ~ ETC ETC !

        Thanks MIKE for another limmy and another

          Well done, Micheal! It's a pleasure to run across well written humor in our usually heavy offerings.

          • Michael Edwards

            Ah thank you Louis - I do write quite a bit of heavy stuff but often get more fun out of writing a bit of nonsense and the limerick is an ideal platform. When it comes to serious work I do wish more poets could write about subject matter other than their own direct personal experiences - to do so is the mark of a good poet. Sorry - I could go on and on - thanks again for your kind comment.

            • Louis Gibbs

              I totally agree, Michael. The younger poets, it seems, haven't had enough life experience to draw from in their poetry, outside of what they are feeling now. Would you agree?
