Nor This

Clipart Image of a compass.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 9 January 2022, pole.

An explorer had simply one goal,
For to trek with a sled to North Pole,
But while on her way there,
Met a great polar bear,
Which regrettably ate her up whole.

  1. This reminds me of another limerick I read in a Dogalogue of Comic Verse when I was a child. It went like this:

    There was a young man from Bengal
    who went to a fancy dress ball.
    He said “I’ll risk it
    and go as a biscuit”.
    But a dog ate him up in the hall.
