2 - Limerick

An amorous couple in Spain
Were about to make love on a train
But their pleasure was marred
Coz a tiresome guard,
Pulled the emergency chain.

On the breast of a barmaid in Sale
Is tattoo'd the price of brown ale
And on her behind,
For the sake of the blind,
Is the same information, in braille!
