Nipped in the Bud

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 11 January 2021, operation.

As a youngster, went crabbing with chum,
When one creature latched onto his thumb,
It required operation,
To remove this crustacean,
Leaving poor guy’s hand withered and numb.


  1. haha! Ouch! Really like this limerick. It has a wonderful flow.

    I live not far from Cromer Town. The home of some of the best crab in the country. I love putting a line in the water and catching me a few big red edible crabs. I always return them alive mind you. As a chef I always said I will never kill a creature. If it comes to me dead I will give it a good funeral though.
