The Woman Who Lit All the Lamps/The Boy in the Park

The Woman Who Lit All the Lamps/The Boy in the Park

To end my Julymericks (July + limericks) posts, we have two slightly surreal stories about a woman with a health condition impacting her work, and a boy who has a strange experience in a park.

The Woman Who Lit All the Lamps

The woman who lit all the lamps
Was plagued in her ankles by cramps
So with barely a cough
She lopped them both off
And she clung to the ladder with clamps

The Boy in the Park

There was a young boy in the park
Who shrank to the size of a quark
He fell down a hole
Made a trade for his soul
With the creature he met in the dark

Unfortunately, electricity mean that the ladies surgery was just needless self-mutilation.
