This Abingdon Limerick


The Town Crier was out announcing The Welcome Home Parade next Wednesday at 10:30...

Both Bicester and Abingdon are home to Logistics Regiments.

We had the Bicester Limerick by Edward Lear yesterday. Hope you got it! A more difficult one today... Try completing This Abingdon Limerick

There was a town crier from Abingdon
who had a bad perm at a hair salon
the sound of his bell
was all good and well
but his head was just frightful to look upon

Not many good rhymes for "Abingdon" out there.

There was a town crier from Abingdon
Who stood in the rain with some padding on
He said "Oh Well"
As he rang his bell
"Much more of this and I'll be paddling home..."

There was a town crier from Abingdon
Who has a green robe which he puts on
When told "Hey, that's large"
Says "At least there's no charge
And it's better than wearing a cardigan"

There was a town crier from Abingdon
who went to town cry up in Babington
He made such a noise
He broke all their toys
That boisterous town crier from Abingdon

There was a town crier from Abingdon
Being watched by two young lads called Pete and Jon
Young Jon said, ‘By heck!
What’s that round his neck?
Has he come out with his net curtains on?’

There was a town crier from Abingdon
Who dance the Morris with Ron
His steps wern't so cool
So they made him the Fool
So he's got more bells than one

There was a town crier from Abingdon
Who townsfolk considered a paragon
He sounded his bell
And said with a yell
'There is nothing that rhymes well with Abingdon!'

There was a town crier from Abingdon
Oh Lord was he a maddening 'un
His voice was pure hell
His face, I won't tell
I say put him in the cell with padding on...
