A limerick a week #229

Going loco off the rails

Here’s a little something to bring a lockdown smile to the face of anyone that remembers the original TV adaptation of the Reverend Awdry’s ‘Railway Series’ of children’s books.

Thomas the Tank Engine for Seven Cellos (and Percussion) arranged and performed by Samara Ginsberg (@samaracello)…

… and, with apologies for re-gendering her and calling her deranged, here’s the limerick:

There once was a musical fellow
Whose playing was rounded and mellow
But they thought him deranged
When he went and arranged
‘Thomas the Tank’ for the cello!
