I had a fat goose and she clucked Each time a soft feather got plucked The goose then got old And could not be sold So into my oven – you’re ‘cooked’! Thanks to Andrea Dietrich for her invaluable advice in helping me with the ending of the poem 04~25~17

As usual, you entertain with your Limericks, Jan! I can't wipe off this big smile off my face, but at the same time I feel sorry for this old goose who was planning on retiring gracefully! I imagine this has to be read using Brummie accent and dialect:) Hugs // paul

You have made my day Ilene:-):-)! We share a similar sense of humour and your interpretation of that final line is what i wanted people to think without resulting saying it and I never use swearing in my poems:-) hugs Jan xx

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
