Willow's picture prompt this week ideally suits the UK weather . . .
What's become of our friend Esther Crun?
She always thought sledging such fun.
But one day, silly dope
with her heart full of hope
she pushed off. Without rope
she soon drew her last breath
as she whizzed to her death
down the tricky, high-speed Cresta Run.
OMG you are hysterically funny...how do you do this cleverness every week? I look forward to every post of yours! Cheers.ReplyDelete
Poor Esther Crun, who expiredReplyDelete
of her fun, there on the steep
ice of the Cresta Run;
made me look up "sledging"
for I am not used to the British
twist of our word, or our Rockwell
innocence. Your humor is dark,
your talent is tall, and since I am
always willing to gobble a lark,
I salute your jest, your poetic
joust, and will wait for more.
Glenn . . I think that on balance your comment is better than my "stretch" limerick! Thanks.ReplyDelete
kathew . . it's not me that's funny. it's my alter ego - but thank you for the compliments.
Esther Crun I once knew long ago -ReplyDelete
the sister to Henry, I trow...
On the radio programme "Goon Show"
the name was first used, don't you know?
The Cruns were unique,
once you'd heard them speak,
Min and Henry were stars of the show!
The pics are so perfect together! Ah, rhyming wit...ReplyDelete
You are a nut! I love it!ReplyDelete
Another nut :)
Poor poor Ester ... but like Bing Crosby at least she went out in style!ReplyDelete
What a way to go!ReplyDelete
What a Magpie!ReplyDelete
who hid that story for us to find
Ooow - I hate it when that happens! lol, nicely silly Doc!ReplyDelete
Poor Esther! Definately channelling a touch of Stevie Smith this week!ReplyDelete
Dear Dr FSTE: Great limerick! Riotously Funny! Yes, Esther Crun the Bobsledger! Wonders why you Brits say "Sledge" rather than "Sled"...maybe nautical seeing as words must travel across wind and dale and bobsledge run! Isnt there a Sister Sledge?ReplyDelete
Wheeeeeeeeee! You are so deliciously dark!ReplyDelete
Dark, indeed. LOL.ReplyDelete
Sometimes the dare just takes one on! Funny, funny!ReplyDelete
What fun ...poor Esther Crun ;-)ReplyDelete
Oh dear, poor girl...what a ride...bkmReplyDelete
So tragic but fun, poor Esther.ReplyDelete
And what, I ask you, became of Sledge Hammer?ReplyDelete
A cop with prisoners you could always hear yammer?
He looked into the death of poor Esther Crun,
not really believing in the myth of the Run,
suspecting somebody had played deadly fun.
He solved the case:
it was not the Race,
it was the Joker who splitted the ice with a rammer
Thank the Powers That Be! A good one! And Funny!ReplyDelete
