A limerick a week #138

A power vacuum

Another busy week means another last minute limerick and one that rather lacks guile.

We’ve taken Priscilla the campervan to the Isle of Mull for a few nights and managed to book on to a new site for which we are paying for an electric hook-up. Just one problem, the idiot that loaded the van (me) forgot the hook-up lead!

A camper once thought he’d be able
To have power, but wasn’t quite able
To make use of the hook-up
(One almighty f**k-up)
When he discovered he’d forgotten his cable!

The view from our van at the Pennygown campsite on the Isle of Mull.

(Actually, we were saved by a neighbouring camper who, fortuitously, always travelled with a spare hook-up cable. There aren’t half some helpful folk around.)
