The sinking sausage

Bill's snowman was missing a snout For carrots in shops had run out. A sausage sufficed But as it de-iced Its purpose was cast into doubt! 30.01.21 Winter Snow Or Ice Limerick Contest Poetry Contest Sponsored by Tania kitchin

Lovely to hear from you again, John. I can only 'do' silly or clever wordplay with this poetic form and it was the former which won this time! All the best to you and the family as well for the year ahead.

The title intrigued me - never thought it could be a snowman limerick. Never wrote one but this is a funny take on winter snow. Congrats, this deserves the win.

Thank you, Joseph. I wanted to say as the snowman de-iced to make the meaning clear but it wouldn't fit the metre!

LOL,, really! I laughed out loud at this one Wendy. Sounds like your snowman might have needed that "little blue pill" LOL

I've changed it slightly since you wrote this comment,David. The idea in my mind was that of the facial sausage replacement gradually sinking down lower as the snowman melted away giving rise to ambiguity. I'm glad that it raised a smile and thanks so much for the comment.

I did wonder about the origination of "a chip off the old block" ....Aloha! Rico

Hi Wendy, Now this is funny - I am not entirely sure that the image that comes to my mind is precisely what you have in mind - but there again... Thanks for the humour, I reckon we need all the laughs we can get during this wretched pandemic. Kindest regards and a Happy New Year - Bill
