There was an old bully called Priti
who’s antics raised cries through The City.
By hook or by crook
she’s now off the hook.
Hypocrisy never looks pretty.


Now Boris, his spending is strident,
Just announced that he’s upgrading Trident!
More food banks?  A breeze!
And an NHS freeze
makes his spending on nukes seem quite vibrant.


Tomorrow we might get a clue
on Christmas and what we can do.
On plans we can fix
And if we can mix
and when we can meet, where and who!

The spirit of Edward Lear is alive and well and living wherever you live, Jo-Ann.
I bought The Observer today so I know all about bully girl Priti Patel now and you've nailed her with your first limerick.
Is she really off the hook? She sounds like the boss from hell to me. As for Donald Trump.... words fail me!
Limericks 2 and 3 aren't bad either. Actually, for me at any rate, all three of them are outstanding and totally topical as opposed to tropical - whoah, I'm going to Barbados (in my dreams...)
You really are a natural when you put your mind to it.
Two slight typos though: 1. 'who's' is a contraction for 'who is' - I think you mean 'whose'.
2. There's a y in 'hypocrisy'.

Cheers, Michael!

Priti is free for now but I’m expecting her whatever’s coming home to roost!

Thanks on the errors too...between by bad grammar and predictive text, who knows where we would be? Lol laugh

A veritable shoal of pertinent Limerickish rhyme, Jo. 

I like the progression throught the week's events too. Not an easy thing to limerick 3 topics in order! I'm priti imressed laugh

The fial rhyme is a triumph of simplicity and efficacy. Thanks for joining in.

Three great limericks. The first one is my favourite, by a close margin.
Thanks for sharing.
