The Limerick contest

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..

There was a young lady from Devon,
Who joined Brighouse when she was just seven,
Originally on Horn,
as interests were torn,

she died and she went to heaven.

There was a big lad from kent,
Who's intentions were always well meant,
The girl that he met,
flew off in a jet,

So he went on a diet for lent.

There was a young flautist from Fife,

D'oh just beat me.... Scrap my previous line.....

Who was sentanced to prison for life..
For playing too sharp,

3 Horns from a band in the west,
Thought of themselves as the best,

D'oh, how do you keep doing that!

Ok I'll take your line,

3 Horns from a band in the west,
got drunk at the wigan bier fest,
As they lifted their Steins,

3 Horns from a band in the west,
got drunk at the Wigan bier fest,
As they lifted their Steins,
they called out "IT RHYMES!!"

Which is lucky, cos rhymes are the best!
