The mountain of books on the shelf

Might indicate my mental health

But I like to see 'em

Arranged to a system

As a sign of my literary wealth!

 

 

 

And a new first line to be dedicated to anyone working in Public Libraries at the moment:

The stress from the restructuring

Caused swear words as rude as f...ing,

But a prude such as I,

With no word of a lie,

Just closed my ears and got stuck in.

 

(Not very good at limericks, so I hope this last line scans properly. If it's okay, here's my first line for the next one)

 

The view from my window today

Is uninspiring shall we say

But I don't look

Away from my book

It's Sunday and footie's on Sky

But if you've Virgin Media no joy

There's an ongoing feud

And without being rude

Just give Radio Five a try

 

New first line:-

 

 

You've read the papers inside out

You've read the papers inside out

It's raining so you can't go out

You suppose you should dust,

But the postman has just

Shrugged, "No hope you rhymin' with 'out' "!

 

 

Better luck this time hopefully -

 

It's 'cash for honours' yet again
