Maverick just beat me to it, but here's mine anyway:

A screenwriter sat in his villa
With sheets of the finest manilla;
He drank mandrake juice
Which set his mind loose
To write episodes of Godzilla.

Lovely - I see looking back you've done some other good ones! ~ and are the other creatives still around as well?

Two fine limericks! Yours was far too good not to publish it here, AC.


QUASSIA – QUARRY

A disused slate quarry in Wales
Sets a scene for some deep and dark tales.
Midst the damp scrub-oak bowers
Quassia’s scarlet flowers
Hide a fiery Welsh dragon’s red scales!

BLASÉ - BLENDE

A sweet but poor American girl named Poor Sweet Wendy
Invented a cheap way to extract zinc from Blende
She soon became rich and blase
Now ten million follow her Face-
Book page. And her manner of speak has become trendy smile

A gardener from Old Amsterdam
Was duped by a crook on the lam;
Treating her as a fool
He left her but one tool:
And thus a Dutch hoe digs prickmadam!

You're a fast one, Maverick - and I mean that in every sense of the word - but your limerick above is suggestive and lewd and funny. What are you....a professional? smile

On strike near the Adelaide line
Stood a picket who yelled "There's a trine!"
I looked up at the stars
And their aspect with Mars,
But he meant "railway vehicle" in Strine.

ANGULAR – ANISEED

My outlook on life is quite angular:
I think, it don’t matter just who you are,
Man’s great sin is Greed
- Mine’s for Aniseed -
A passion that’s totally singular!

Superb! Well done mate smile

Good on yer too, Rhuby.

There once was a lass from Devizes
Whose boobs were of two different sizes
“Welladay!” she would sing
as her bra failed to cling
and the welkin smiled down on her prizes!
