Four Limericks - Poem by Michael Regan

There was an old codger from Shere(1)
Who said to his wife “Have no fear”
When I think it’s all over, I’ll go down to Dover
And jump off the end of the pier

(if they have one. If not I’ll try Bognor.(2))

There was a young woman from Bray
Who washed herself ten times a day.
By the time she was thirty,
Trying not to be dirty,
She’d washed herself completely away!

A chap from Weston super Mare
Sat on a porcupine just for a dare
When asked how it felt, he calmly replied
That he felt not a thing- (but I think that HE LIED!)

There was a young girl from Kowloon
Who thought that she’d married too soon.
When her husband said “Come! ”
Far away did she run,
That timid young girl from Kowloon.

1 A village in Surrey.
2 A seaside town on the south coast of England.
