I am sorry Peter, but these limericks range from pretty ordinary to fairly awful to be honest. It's especially annoying when the very first one in the e-book has a spelling mistake!
These are like the ones I used to write 10 years ago when I started, with clumsy meter and ordinary tales that evolve as a result of the rhyme rather than the limerick being written to tell an already amusing story.
Please refer to www.limericks.org or get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org for emergency assistance or indeed refer to www.oedilf.com where the meter is painstakingly perfect.
Again, apologies if this seems at all harsh, but the people's poetry, the humble limerick, is too valuable to abuse!
