Lear and 200 Limericks

A Book of Nonsense by Edward Lear

As an occasional performer at the excellent Buxton Word Wizards poetry slam group, I was asked if I’d like to contribute some limericks to an exhibition, set up to mark Sir Edward Lear’s bicentennial. The plan was to display two hundred original and new limericks in the beautiful dome at the University of Derby’s Buxton Campus. The exhibition opens today and is open to the public (free entry) until 11th August. I believe four of my limericks are in there somewhere and I’ll be setting off for Buxton as soon as possible to see if I can spot them, oh and to read the other 196, of course.
