One form of corundum is ruby.
I know this, though I am a noobie.
With beauty galore,
Its cost is much more
Than identical weight in a doobie.

A gem if a Limerick, Peter!

When ere I desire some fresh air
My buggy will take me out there:
To make sure that my luck’s not
Run out, I load buckshot
To give any muggers a scare!

"A gem if a Limerick, Peter!" shocked

Is our Rhub being rude or fat-fingered? laugh

Racing pigeons run round from post to pillar
Homing pigeons home to home from hither
The Passenger Pigeons
Once numbering two billion
Are as dead as a Dodo with us as the killer

An Overture leads to a Suite;
An overpass leads to the street.
In competitive sport
Or proceedings in court,
An oversight leads to defeat.

I swills down a pint of weedkiller,
Then lashes me 'and to the tiller.
I sails in foul weather,
And goes hell-for-leather.
Me life on the sea is a thriller!

Nice limerick, Tromboniator – full of salt!


I noticed a postal van parking;
The parcel it brought had no marking,
Except a small sign
Saying "Don't drink this wine".
How completely and utterly barking!

(From the British expression "barking mad")
