Limerick / Valentine's Countdown – 7

This week’s limerick prompt from Mind and Life Matters is “feral”…

A cartoon character called Beryl
Was always but one step from peril
She claimed to be brave
But just misbehaved
Acting decidedly feral!

(Beryl the Peril was a longstanding character in British comics – a female equivalent of the better-known Dennis the Menace)

I’m also doing a Valentine’s Day countdown here, so thought I’d try a limerick on that theme too…

It’s been said that the feeling of “love“,
Long-argued when push came to shove,
Is no more
Than a dull metaphor…
But it fits like a hand in a glove!

    1. Thanks Diana… every compliment on this fills me with the slight panic that comes from not having planned any other poems in this series! Let’s hope inspiration strikes… πŸ™‚
