A cantank\'rous gent on this phorum
Took umbrage at rules of decorum
As his standards slipped
The Mod/Admins clipped
the saucier bits and deplored \'em

A commitment to Mod\'nAdminlyness: I understand that  r-e-s-i-s-t-a-n-c-e  *i - s*    f-u-t-i-l-e.
I shall not be starc

Not only is it apt, but it is funny it scans (which is more than can be said for most - yes, including mine - )
its clean and the rhymes are clever.   Give atickle a coconut  and a gold star, someone!>:D<

Requiem for a Limerick thread:(

A Limerick pure without smut
is perfectly feasible, but
Like low alcohol wine
 it lacks a punch line
and, like coffee sans caffeine, goes phut.

Just a possible tweak IE.

Do you think
\"Whilst claiming it is in compliance\"
scans?

I\'ll go with IE\'s first, as I don\'t need no double neg to know that I wasn\'t minded to unprefer that one.

I think.

That Tru is no Banksy is clear
But I haven\'t come here to sneer
She chooses to paint
With practised restraint
Unless she is sated with beer

Truthy, my claws are retracted.........until needed.

To answer simply, Banksy is a street artist, but simplicity though appealing, is not always enough.

I do recommend you explore the Google/Wiki route, it\'s more fun.

Tru : or you could just search for \"Banksy\" on this Phorum!  He came up in a discussion some time ago!
I had to do a google search  - I was ashamed to admit Ididnt know who he was - and let us just say I was gobsmacked (er, am I allowed to say THAT).   Would be really interested to hear what you think!
