Meanwhile, here is an excerpt from the poem titled ‘Thirty-two Limericks’:
There was a washerwoman in Dublin
who owned next to nothing.
When she found the riches
in her landlord’s dirty britches
she became a landlady in Dublin.
There was a boy from Fermanagh
who was rather skinny and tall.
His feet and head
hung over the bed
so he could not even sleep at all.
There was a man in Galway
who slept on large bales of hay
until the itch mites
got hungry enough to bite.
Who knew there were mites in Galway?
There was a maiden from Kerry
who prayed in the sanctuary.
She’d begin at sunrise
‘til slumber was in her eyes,
‘til the next morning in Tralee.
