... compose limericks.

Here are a couple:


I have a new toy, it's a belter:
A computer allows you to melt a
Thin ribbon of plastic
The results are fantastic
A great 3D printer, a 'Delta'.

Oh I long for my own laser cutter
90 watts of hot knife through butter
Just watch the sparks fly
From acrylic and ply
I must be some sort of nutter.

Best wishes, stay safe

John

He he! Very good.

I don't think these are strictly limericks but at short notice...

With a saw, a hammer and some wood
I feel happier than maybe I should
Add a plane and some sand-paper
and it's turned into my sort of caper.


Once a week on the discord chat
Seeing all my chums where they are sat
We shoot the breeze just like old times
and now we have to make up rhymes.

We shouldn’t just talk of the virus
But instead of the things that inspire us
Even locked in our room
even then we can zoom
and hopefully then they won’t fire us

Ha! That's typical. Are you down to just pasta now or do you still have
some beans to go with it?
