This led to me wondering if JK Rowling was perhaps about to write an 'alternative' ending to the saga, and what other changes she might make - all of which resulted in the limerick below:
Said JK: “You might well have read
that Ron and Miss Granger got wed.
In the re-write I’ll marry
off Granger to Harry,
and maybe I won’t kill off Fred.
Occasionally, when I write such a topical limerick, I send it off to The Daily Mail's 'Peterborough' columnist. Until two days ago, no joy with publication - then, to my amazement, I was sent an email from a lady on the Peterborough column telling me the limerick had been published.
Well, that's my first piece of published work in a national UK newspaper - let's see if I can get some more.
