It’s been nearly two weeks since my last limerick challenge and yesterday I suddenly found myself with itchy limerick-writing-fingers! My sons chose a panda as my subject. I have to admit, I didn’t write a particularly child-friendly limerick (no mentions of bottoms or snot!) but the boys were still happy to draw pictures of pandas for me. The 4yo’s effort (above) does look rather more like a demonic puppy though… perhaps that could be the subject of a future poem?
There was an unfortunate panda
Whose parents-in-law couldn’t stand her
“Oh Steve!” they’d exclaim
To their son of that name,
“We preferred your LAST girlfriend: Miranda!”
