Limerick For Beginners

Rating: 3.4

A recalcitrant poetry critic
who was harsh and a bit analytic
was the colour of custard
but the hot taste of mustard
I prefer either Jack or Glenfiddich.

He produced a great poem or two
which gave all the poets a clue
and they figured him smart
but he was an old fart
I'll go back to my digeridoo.

Herbert, when referring to old farts, you didn't mean moi, did you? How cruel.
