My feeble attempt to imitate one of the all-time greats of the Limerick genre.

Alternative Limerick

A dissolute sailor called Rick
Found a boil on the end of his nose
He said "What is this,
It hurts when I sneeze?"
Said the doc: "You've been dipping your mainsail!"

Author's note: This was inspired by my all-time favourite Limerick, done in the same style, which goes as follows:

There was a young lady from Bude
Who went for a swim in the lake
A man in a punt
Stuck an oar in her ear
And said: "You can't swim here, it's private!"
