    Thanks to Edward Lear and the A-A-B-B-A, let's introduce a new thread where by when the previous limerick finishes, we start a new one!

    The challenge is to try and avoid all the ones that we already know and create some new ones, I'm sure we've all sung ....."sing us another one, just like the other one...etc" on the band bus?

    Please try to leave enough time for any previous posts to be included and please try to add only ONE line at a time! Also, copy all the previous lines in to create a final 5 line poem in the same post, that way the next new Limerick starts with a single line....good luck!

    I'll start in traditional style by intoducing a person and a place..
