The Big Reveal

Clipart image of a young girl in a miniskirt.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 29 March 2022, reproach.

When my sister wore mini at school,
She fair made all the teenage boys drool,
But the stern-faced headmistress,
Not amused she should transgress,
Gave her six of the best with a rule.

In response to a request to have more women victims… here we go!

  1. Ouch, that hurt! Lovely limerick. I remember learning in a children’s magazine back in the early 1990s that corporal punishment wasn’t banned in schools in the UK till sometime like 1986 or something. Not sure if it’s correct, but it sounded outrageous to me.

    • I think that’s definitely possible. I certainly remember our headmaster caning people while I was at junior school (under eleven!) which would have been Seventies, and I myself got the slipper in the early Eighties.

      There is a law here called “parental chastisement”, which allows parents to smack their children. Outlawed in some parts of the UK but not in England.
