RECOLLECTIONS: From Vol 1, No.2 of Negative Capability
Here are a few limericks from
Mary Lawrence (Mickey Cleverdon)
An old house in the town of Avaunted
Ran an ad that it wished to be haunted
Said a shy liitle ghost
On accepting the post,
“It’s nice to know that you’re wanted.”
. . .
A boy from Slag Hill, Tennessee
Sat endlessly watching TV
He petrified there
And fell from his chair,
And was thrown in the trash as debris.
. . .
There once was a young girl named May
Who talked in a whisper all day.
When someone said “Louder!”
The shock simply cowed her,
And she whispered a scream anyway.
There was a young snapperer named Snipperer
Who breakfasted on fragrant fried kipperer.
No, he didn’t mind
Eating one of his kind.
He said, “Kipperer made Snipperer feel chipperer.”
