A limerick a week #29


In honour of my big sister’s landmark birthday (and dependency on wine), I give you:

The fruit of the grape may assuage
The fact that she’s now reached the age
Where an ‘owd Cumbrian lass’
Can pick up a pass
For an omnibus birthday rampage.

“With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come, and rather let my liver heat with wine than my heart cool with mortifying groans”. Or is it just wind?
