Cricket Limerick part deux

After the surprising success of the first limerick idea I had, it’s time for a repeat. For rules and regulations, see here – but the concept is simple: use the a a b b a 5-line form, and make it as funny and irreverant as possible. And the first, second and fifth lines generally have eight syllables, hence a limerick’s rhythm. For example:

A flea and a fly in a flue

Were caught, so what could they do?

Said the fly, “Let us flee.”

“Let us fly,” said the flea.

So they flew through a flaw in the flue.
