649 : The Piper

Mad Kane has a weekly limerick challenge.
She provides the first line,
The rest is up to us:

The Piper

The bravery of someone who blows
On bagpipes, is hard to suppose.
As they pump and exhale
It lets out a high wail—
Like a cat in its final death throes.

  1. There's a reason why the 'lone piper' is such a common sight.

  2. And bagpipes always make my eyes leak. The sound or the sentiment? Not sure.

  3. You are commenting on VERY thin ice Mr Newbery. There is nothing, NOTHING more stirring to the Scottish heart than the sound of bagpipes down in the glen.


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