On Saturday it’s National Limerick Day, here are our attempts at the old 5 liner!

If you’ve ever served Queen and Country,
Watch your pension and what it will be
If you don’t, you will find 
That you’ve no peace of mind,
Come to us, we will check and we’ll see.


Some like to throw beer down their necks
And others think only of sex
Some think of their pension
And so relieve tension
Wise virgins receiving their cheques


A soldier found pensions a bore
And that planning ahead was a chore
His mates lie in the sun
On the planning they’ve done
He has nothing and sleeps on the floor.
