There once was a lassie called H …
Short and sweet this week. Firstborn (aka ‘H’) told a friend that “my dad writes a limerick a week”. Her friend apparently thought that was the opening line of a limerick itself, so, at Firstborn’s request, here is one that does start that way:

With a bawdy, irreverent streak.
(Except they’re not really bawdy or irreverent more’s the pity).
