Young lady from Diss

A delightful young lady from Diss
A night on the town she did miss
Her boyfriend Jim Tucker
Who was my good mucker
Wanted more than a cuddle and kiss

This delightful young lady from Diss
Would only give Jim Tucker a kiss
Put his hand to her breast
Only to feel a hairy chest
He thought something’s gravely amiss

Jim Tucker was definitely not pleased
With what resembled a carrot and two peas
She said "I think I'm in luck"
Jim said "I don't think so my duck"
As she tried to give his thigh a good squeeze.

  1. I do love good limericks.. they are just so hard to write...

    This is the best of my own I think.

    There once was a man from Kilkenny
    One night met a lady named Jenny
    He was very keen
    and she wasn’t green
    With a smile he spent every penny

  2. I'm not sure I'm getting all of this. Maybe if I don't think of Jim as pronoun) her boyfriend? Ah, yes.

    1. Hi Susan, you're not alone as I sometimes don't get things I've written !?!. However, Jim is her new boyfriend in early stages of an explorative relationship only to find to his dismay that what he thought was an attractive young lady is infact a tansvestite. (Oh my word)

  13. Ha ha! And I see you held to the limerick tradition of risqué subject matter. Very cool! I have taken several runs at the limerick form - as I love humorous poetry. But, alas, I have yet to come up with something I'm pleased with. As with most satirical poems (and prose, for that matter) it's a lot trickier than it might appear at first pass. Great job!

    1. So much fun to write in a different genre to the norm. Thanks for you kind thoughts.

  14. Partly a consequence of liberalism perhaps. One of the same kind trying to make friends! Love this humor Julian!

  15. An amusing theme. As someone said, reminiscent of "Lola" ... it also brought the Neil Jordan film "The crying Game" to mind. The Limerick treatment was a clever way in because Limericks so often address bawdy subjects. You wove your way carefully around the obvious rhyme in the last stanza. Neat footwork, Julian!
