There was a young girl from Nantucket
Who sailed the seven seas in a bucket.
It rusted right through
And that was her clue
To head to the shore and just dock it!

I laughed heartily when I read the email about today’s Writing 201 challenge today. I spent a couple of weeks in America last Summer, mainly to meet up with my daughter in New York. But before that, I visited Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
And Nantucket seemed to inspire the limerick in me and my partner – and all my long suffering extended family who were given the first line of the limerick whenever I could steal an opportunity. So, for the last few months, we have been toying with this limerick although it is only today that I have found something that is suitable for publishing as a last line!
Please enjoy……and happy Writing 201
