Saint Patrick’s Day Limerick Competition

There were only two entries to the competition this year, but both were original works, written especially for the event.

The runner-up, written by Steve Stewart was:

Doctor Palmer was a farmer
He looked like Willie Nelson.
He braided his hair.
He just didn’t care!
And sometimes he wore it with bells on.

The winner was written by Chris Palmer:

There was an ex-prezzie called Steve,
Thought composing a sort of reprieve,
He grew his hair long,
Like L van Beethoven,
But his playing made everyone leave.

Judging was by imaginary ‘clapometer’

First prize was a can on Guinness

Second prize was the sense that true art transcends the value of such fleeting material awards, and lasts longer – even longer than the head on Guinness.
