It snapped and it bit
And it did a big shit
So she traded it in for a guppy.

Apologies - that’s terrible!

'They're hard work!' said friend
'Drive you right round the bend'
So she forgot it and went for a curry

@boobybum I love it! grin

I'm sorry, but I'm stuck on my inability to accept the rhyming of "clucky" and "puppy".

Maybe it should be There once was a girl who felt blubby?

(Mind you that doesn't properly rhyme either)

Well Respectabitch, if you are going to take that line we may have to make it rather more "adult" in nature.

"There once was a girl who felt clucky
so thought about getting real mucky........"

when someone replies we'll wish we'd stuck with the innocent puppy half-rhyme!

She wanted to marry
A man known as Harry
And he said ‘well do you feel lucky (punk)?’

She wanted a lad
Who knew how to be bad
And give her a very good ....

Ah it’s all going downhill now..... <shakes head>

Booby is finding these too easy and needs a challenge

“There once was a worldwide pandemic
That made people illness systemic.......

Things turned a bit barmy
So they called in Dad’s Army
And Corporal Jones shouted out loud ‘Don’t Panic!’

Apologies again.

That has definitely got potential booby but I think both of us went to a tiny bit wrong with the scansion.

‘There once was a worldwide pandemic
That caused a grave illness systemic
Things turned a bit barmy
They called in the army
And Corporal Jones shouted “don’t panic”’.

Now that’s a limerick!
