The day’s congregation was rocked
When a priest whose advances were blocked
Chased a boy from the choir
Halfway up the spire
And had to be quickly defrocked

To my mind, that's the best limerick I ever wrote. But for some reason, nobody wants limericks about paedophile priests.

Hello Ben:
Well, we were highly delighted and amused by this limerick!

We have discovered you quite by chance via the delicious Alec Lindsay and are so pleased to have arrived. Where you lead, we shall now Follow!

Ben said...

Jane and Lance: I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Literally dozens haven't.

I have discovered you in very much the same way (and yes he is delicious), so please consider yourselves followed.

I should never have read these comments! I'm so taken by my deliciousness that I've been simpering at people ever since you turned my head. I was actually going to suggest 'improvements' to the limerick but my critical faculty has turned to mush :/

Ben said...

Alec: One of the perks of deliciousness is that criticism is always well received, so please do suggest away.

Nope! Nothing but mush in there! :) xx
