A limerick a week #35

I was lacking inspiration for this week’s ALAW until I realised that could be an inspiration in itself. So here is a last-minute limerick that is not very good, but it is anapestically correct!

There is always a mountain to climb
When you struggle to find a new rhyme,
But I’m pleased to relate
That it’s not yet too late
To publish my limerick on time!

Postscript: By sheer coincidence I was sent the following pic after my earlier post about haiku and limericks. It took a minute or two to see the joke (I’m obviously a bit thick), but it made me laugh when I did:
