CYHA Limerick Competition 2012
to Doug for organising the limerick contest at our Christmas party, and thanks
to all those who submitted entries. They fulfilled their main purpose, which
was to entertain and amuse the gathering, following the gargantuan feast and
preceding more vigorous activity.
Old Doug set the writers a test
He thought it a jolly good jest.
Some poets were keen
to keep the thing clean.
But the rudest one turned out the best.
Now Trudi’s a good friend of ours,
and all on her plate she devours.
She eats of the best,
just like all the rest,
only later, by twenty four hours.
A daring young lady called Cress
once went for a walk in a dress.
She got lost in a fog
and fell in a bog.
So that Cress, in a dress, was a mess.
Dave rises at daybreak it’s said,
And with bangers and beans goes ahead,
And Cress butters bread
To keep us all fed,
While Fergus stays firmly in bed
Doug is our oldest
There was an old hiker called Fritz
