Meanwhile, I've written a couple of limericks on topical subjects. Firstly, though perhaps it's not really that humorous in view of the people he's hurt over the years - Lance Armstrong:
There once was a cheater called Lance
who led us a merry old dance.
Whilst doping for years
he bullied his peers
and devalued the great Tour de France.
On a more humorous note (though some might not think so), a limerick based on the news story that horse DNA has been found in beefburgers:
Some people might claim that a horse
shouldn't really be served as main course.
But swapping of stable
for restaurant table
is fine if you've got the right sauce.
As mentioned above, more on The Dyer's Second Tale next week once I've put it through its final edit.
