A limerick a week #50


It’s not always easy to think of something sensible to write on a colleague’s You’re leaving to have a baby card. So I wrote this instead:

On Parenthood

I’m sure (s)he will turn out quite sweet
(Despite all the things (s)he’ll excrete!)
But in time mum and dad
Will be driven quite mad
Watching kiddy-cartoons on repeat!

Postscript: Some folk made cake for the pre-maternity leaving do; I made tiffin …

Crumbled digestive biscuit and chopped raisins and glace cherries
Butter, cocoa powder, golden syrup and caster sugar
