Verse And Worse

It's A Bit Terse, But It Ain't A Curse

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


If you've already seen my post from yesterday, titled Cut To The Quick, then maybe you'll have a chuckle at this limerick. You see, I should have paid heed to this photograph taken on the picturesque main street of the little Outback town called Nhill in the Wimmera region. It's a strangely prophetic image, with a speed warning and a bakery sign. If I'd watched my speed a few minutes later, I would have saved myself (gratuitous reference to the bakery) a lot of um, dough. Okay, so here's the limerick ...

One morning, on the highway near Nhill,
I was hit with a sizeable bill,
The sight of a copper,
Was a real heart-stopper,
For me, but not for my m-i-l.

The bun stops here. :-)
I have a photo of a bakery on my post also. Thank goodness, I walked by (and got to the neighborhood by streetcar, was not named desire, but a very prosaic no. 5).

Enjoyed the post. Also merisi's comment.

We do not have a bakery here where we live so I have to go back to World War II days almost to remember what one is like.

I can still smell the smells of freshly baking breads. Oh my. Something to die for.

Home made bread, mmm.
We have Asda who bake their own.

I bake my own breads, rolls and pastries, but I would much prefer to buy them if we had a decent bakery in our town. I read through several of your entries and must say, they are insightful and humorous and I enjoyed them immensely. Thanks so much for visiting my little corner of the Western hemisphere...have a great day! (or is it night? I'm so confused)

I loved the story about NHill. That is so embarassing when children are present...and of course, the Limerick is great fun!

David, I want to say thanks for the comment at my blog today. I just read a few of your posts and enjoyed them, especially the one about the 27-year-past wedding pictures! What a wonderful thing! There are many good people, and it is too bad that they don't get the press like the bad ones. :)(:

Very funny verse! I can picture your wife, mother-in-law and daughter all laughing with or is it "at" you for the speeding ticket!

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog.
