CCCXII - Lady of Repute

Mad Kane has a regular limerick challenge.
She provides the first line, the rest is up to us.
Meanwhile One Single Impression had the topic 'Wanting".
Always a good limerick prompt!

A man who was normally astute
Was chasing a lady of repute.
She was known in society
For her gross impropriety
But he couldn’t have given a hoot.

A girl who was very astute
Thought a maths teacher was cute
But he only had eyes
For functions of pi
'Til she showed him a lovely square root.

A girl who was very astute
Avoided the guys in pursuit
By taking them aside
To quietly confide
That she already had one up the chute.

A man who was very astute
Was also extremely hirsute.
The girls were all wary
About men who were hairy,
Something he was keen to refute.

  1. Yes, I know. It should have really been disrepute but the metre didn't flow.

  2. I think I'm now up for reading 'Ode to a Plughole'


  3. Why wouldn't she be a lady of repute?

    Red dirt girl's comment cracked me up, btw?

  4. That's a period after btw.

  5. Wicked poem it is! Love it! x

  6. The title just sounds so deliciously kinky .....

    (the reading didn't disappoint ;)


  7. The astute girl had me chuckling - or smiling out loud or something like that. Thank you, on a grey day both internally and externally these were a gift.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
