Some people argue that a familiar nursery rhyme was the prototypical limerick. Which inspired what I call...

Winston’s Rhyme

When I first saw Room 101’s clock,
It was striking thirteen, to my shock.
Now the clock has struck one,
And the rats have begun
Singing Hickory Dickory Dock.

And the sinister singing rats remind me of Coraline (have you read it?)

Thanks Kirsten, I did like this one. On Coraline, no, I’ve been meaning to read it ever since seeing him talk about it at the Book Festival, but haven’t got around to it. I’ll have to track down a copy.
