For Auld Rabbie

Thaur was an auld fellow named Rabbie/

His poetry was unco grabby/

His verses sae sweet/

Wi’ rhyming sae neat/

An scansion ye cannae call flabby.

(This Burns night limerick was prompted by the excellent stream of Burns-inspired twitter poetry coming from @robertflorence’s twitter feed, using the hashtag #RabRabbie. Apologies in advance for my feeble command of Scottish).

There is an old fellow called Mick/Who's been penning the odd limerick/I admit he's no Keats/But he does them in tweets/So to follow, you just have to click. https://twitter.com/#!/twitmericks "The limerick master of the twitterati" (The Guardian).
