You can still buy all sorts of fireworks in UK - bangers, riackets, Roman Candles, Goblin Moines, etc, etc. When I was a kid, these were just for November 5th (Guy Fawkes Day, celebrating the burnig of the stake of the catholic terrorist who tried to blow up King James I of England (& VI of Scotland)and Parliament - almost enough to make me convert from atheism to catholicism!

But, increasingly, fireworks are moving into the hands of professionals who put on slendid firework shows, lasting half an hour and getting through several thousnad pounds-worth of gunpowder and chemicals which pollute the atmosphere as much as a motorway with four solid lanes of traffic for an hour.

The recent movie "Neverland" with Charlie Roe as Peter,
has a scene concerning ' penny for the Guy".

A turbot in every pot, a drink for every sot
Said the Queen who wasn't mean...well, not a lot
Give us cake, the riffraff said
In turn she said, off your head
Merry England wasn't very merry; merry it was not.

I'm looking forward to the limerick with those two words.
Good choice JJ.

Some folks swear that my life's Kafkaesque.
Others doubt it: "Self-conscious burlesque."
It won't do any harm, a
Small effect on my karma
If I keep a cockroach on my desk.

Brilliant, Peter! I've been trying - and failing - to get a limerick round these for days! Congratulations.

Thank you all. I was here when jj posted the pair, and it was a struggle, until suddenly it wasn't.

A young ballerina called Rose
Would rise on the points of her toes
In her father's conservatory
And, with movements rotatory,
Sink into a beautiful pose.
