Wattage in the Cottage

An old man who lived in a cottage
Turned his stove to the maximum wattage
When he opened the door
He collapsed on the floor
For the wattage had shrivelled his sausage

 I wrote a limerick for Joseph May’s current contest yesterday called “A blockage in my cottage” but I had the word “wattage” left over. And I always like to use up leftovers! ;-)

Wattage came to me and said “look, I’m delighted to be of service but I just don’t think I rhyme with sausage!” I said “Shuddup Wattage, and get in the limerick!” Cruel but kind.

Indeed, and as everyone knows, you can forgive a sausage anything, even attempting to rhyme with “wattage”! Teehee. Thanks Jan!
