A fish pong round the boat was so smelly "Hold your noses "cried out Captain Kelly Whale then bit off a chunk Fishing boat and crew sunk They all ended up in the whales belly. Written 5th August 2019. Syllables in both stanza's 10/10/6/6/10. Syllable check at how many syllables .com Two sea themed limericks' poetry contest Tania Kitchin - Sponsor .
