So here we are, a mere six days from my decision not to take part in any blog hops at all for a whole month and I’m already linking up with Prose for Thought!
This really is the last time (for a month) though. The thing is, having accidentally forgotten to do my weekly limerick challenge on Monday – leading to my decision to switch to doing that on an ad hoc basis – the boys suddenly got really keen for me to write one. They spent a couple of days flinging suggestions at me: ‘a kitten!’, ‘a rhino!’, ‘an armadillo!’ ’till my brain finally stopped spinning and I wrote a couple.
Since I’ve written them and it’s a Thursday (and I love #Prose4T) I figured I will linkup. But that is IT. No more blog-hopping in May. I need to dedicate more time to creative writing and less time to blogging if I’m ever going to get anywhere with the humungous task of writing a book.
Anyway, enough preamble. Two baboon limericks. Illustrations by my boys as usual:
There was an unlucky baboon
With a bum like a shrivelled balloon
Sometimes he would hate it
Till he learned to inflate it
And bounced spacehopper-style round the room
A young and ambitious baboon
Built a rocket to fly to the moon
But he had no knowledge
Of engine hydraulics
And thus the whole project was doom(ed)
