A-Z 2015 – reflection

The A-Z month went quite fast
And I blogged from the first to the last.
I read what I could
(though not what I should)
But all in all I had a blast

My theme of phonetics of NATO
Was as mushy as mashed sweet potato.
It would have been worse
Had I chosen to verse
The musings of someone like Plato

I followed a number of blogs
About language and countries and dogs;
It really was fun,
I enjoyed every one
With their stories of frogs, logs and clogs

But now it has come to the end
The month has no more days to lend
I can no longer type
Any more of this tripe
If I do, I’ll go right round the bend!

But into more blogs I’ll be dipping
As on the Road Trip I’ll be skipping
I’ll be reading a load
As I follow the road;
In the words of the song, “Yo tripping”

As my contribution to the A-Z blogging challenge this year, I offered each day a limerick containing the day’s key word, the key words being based on the NATO phonetic alphabet. atoz [2015] - BANNER - 910

A-Z 2015 – out-takes


Just for fun, a few limericks that didn’t make the cut during April.

With a mike and a speaker I’m set
For the best stand-up comedy yet.
All I need is a bloke
To deliver a joke
And say something you’ll never forget.

As soon as we get to September
I really start dreading November.
I’m sure that I’ve heard
A unfavourable word
Although what, I just cannot remember.

My folks wanted me to reform
And wear a khaki uniform.
I’d rather chase horses
Than join the armed forces
And conform to the norm of the swarm.

I just couldn’t stand the enormity
Of regimented uniformity.
I think I’d go barmy
If I joined the army
And lost all of my non-conformity.

I always have trouble confiding,
Like a unicorn, I stay in hiding.
Whatever I say
They’ll take the wrong way,
And it’s me they’ll end up deriding.

Z is for Zulu

Zulu

A week in Kwa-Zulu Natal
Was a tonic for me and my pal.
We were chased by a rhino
(Or was it a wino?)
Either way it was good for morale.
