The vicar surveyed her wide girth Was scared that in church she’d give birth He raised his eyebrows Then rushed through their vows ... He wasn’t adept at childbirth! Inspired by the poem ‘Decision Needed’ by Maurice Rigoler 13TH April 2016

I was at an open air concert of Imelda May, an Irish artist in her last trimester. I was ready and waiting for her waters to burst. Front row. Well done Jan.

I understand the vicar wasn't presiding at the shotgun wedding. Great limerick. I wish I could write one, but no talent. Love, daver

Excellent, Jan, with great rhymes too. If extra work went into writing it, it doesn't show at all, smooth as butter. / M

Thanks Maurice - but I owe you thanks for letting me have your blessing to write a poem based on your original. I penned the first four lines then I got stuck for the ending ... then inspiration finally hit:-) thanks once again:-) hugs Jan xx
