Sub Standard

For World Poetry Day, here’s a departure from limericks. Some experiences on Twitter of weird online shopping substitutions brought to mind Lewis Carroll’s surreal poem A Strange Wild Song – my template here.

She thought she bought some tampons from/

The website Jeff controls,/

She looked again, and saw it was/

A bag of sausage rolls,/

A rather cavalier approach,/

She felt, to plugging holes.


She thought she bought a walnut loaf/

To share with all of us,/

She looked again and saw it was/

A Tesco’s octopus./

We ate it with our tea because/

She didn’t want a fuss.

About twitmericks

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.!/twitmericks "The limerick master of the twitterati" (The Guardian).
