A series of (non-acrostic) limericks produced in response to various prompts.

These will appear on Saturday mornings wherever possible.

Let me know what you think.

Borborygmus; how’s that for a word?
At first hearing, it sounds quite absurd.
To make it quite clear
It’s the sound that you hear
When the gas in your insides is stirred.

Before you start popping champagne,
Just try to run this through your brain:
The glory of victory
Is oft contradictory;
You may lose a lot more than you gain.

While taking development classes,
I looked through my “realist” glasses.
Just an ordinary slob
With an ordinary job.
It’s like fighting my way through molasses.

        1. I’ve never used it conversationally. I found it as a synonym for flatulence and decided it would be a great name for an alien civilisation whose flatulence was one of their key attributes.


    1. Thanks, Dave. I was delighted when that was chosen as the word of the day. In my book ‘Making Merry’, I gave that name to a race of aliens (from, obviously, the planet Borbor). Aided by my trusty thesaurus, that gave me tremendous scope for naming individuals!
