My weekly limerick challenge seems to have grown an extra feature – my sons keep drawing pictures to go with whatever I write a limerick about! This week they chose ‘ostrich’ as a theme. There was much laughter at the final line (small boys are so easy to please!) although I did have to explain the old fashioned meaning of the word ‘drawers’ to them.
Here’s what I came up with:
There once was a dextrous young ostrich
who was very proficient at cross-stitch
needle clamped ‘tween her claws
she embroidered some drawers
but sadly the things made her bot itch.
This challenge is proving to be quite fun but also quite a brain strain!
