In response to Business in Rhyme’s post on limericks

Many moons ago, when I was in high school, I wrote limericks. I tried to make them as daft as possible: sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t. The cool thing about limericks is that they’re very easy to remember – even when you wrote them 20-ish years ago…

Scratchy Cratchet

There once was a man called Cratchet
who always his head did scratch it
His wife did not like it
so off she did strike it
Poor old Scratchy Cratchet

One night when his wife was asleep
he into her bedroom did creep
“Oh my,” said his head
“I’m under the bed,
but what has she done wif me teef?!”

Written some time between 1994 and 1996
