Reblog: The Butcher From Fife

Hahaha. Misky just made me think of a limerick I wrote last year. I dug it out again so thought I’d share. I still think it’s brilliant, even if I say so myself 🤣.

Looks like I was even experimenting with speaking it at the time. I settled on SoundCloud as the best voice recording service, because WordPress has a SoundCloud block so it fits nicely into posts, but I gave up altogether when I looked at the stats and saw nobody was listening anyhow.

Anyway, enjoy the bonus poem today!

Mister Bump

There was an old butcher from Fife,
Who lovingly sharpened his knife,
His words, they were cordial,
His actions, primordial,
As he dextrously gutted his wife!

Slipped Through the Net

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 17 August 2021, glut.

Felt the pinch when one opened next door,
For the subsequent glut,
Meant his profits so cut,
That he fillets his catches no more.
