We wrote limericks again today. Some students finished the ones they had begun and others were absent. One student from the latter group wanted to know what could go with something about the sea. I threw this out, but she wasn’t interested. I think it is the abridged story of the Old Man and the Sea.
There was an old man who lived on the sea.
He loved an occasional cuppa tea.
Unfortunately, he the water was from the brine.
He joyfully turned to wine.
That drunken old man who lived on the sea.
