And one by Dylan Thomas

I just watched A poet in New York Last Night, about Dylan Thomas’s last days.

It featured this rather wonderful limerick of his, that I hadn’t come across before:

+++

There was an old bugger called God,

Who got a young virgin in pod.

This disgraceful behaviour

Begot Christ our Saviour,

Who was nailed to a cross, poor old sod.
