.Mad Kane has a regular limerick challenge.
She provides the first line, the rest is up to us.
A woman was instructed to wedBy her father who wanted, ‘twas said,
To strengthen the strands
That bound neighbouring clans;
A prospect that filled her with dread.
A fellow was planning to wedAnd dreamed the first night in his bed.
But it was all in vain,
As she had a migraine,
So he had a cold shower instead.
A sovereign was planning to wedHe’d done it several times, it was said.
Each of his wives
Had had truncated lives
As they left him, minus their head.
A fellow was planning to wedA lady, a true thoroughbred.
In the hay, in the stable,
She showed she was able
To be mounted and ridden and led.
