Limerick 1: because 154 sonnets are enough already

[A new poem about Henry VIII, my first real foray into limericks]

I was inspired to scribble this bauble yesterday, after seeing the latest barrage in the Battle of Bitchy Banter between @KngHnryVIII and @richard_third on Twitter. I must say, Henry could use some Tudoring with his poetry. No ear at all for metre, at least where limericks are concerned. He should stick to his ballads.

I might have to begin a new cycle. I’ll be signing them this time, and backing them up to my Dropbox.
Limerick 1 - @EDeVere17Henry’s are cute, though bumpy. Not bad for a hobbyist. I’m only talking about his technique; I leave you to judge the content for yourself.160206-henry8-bad-limericks-398x315
