The austenland limerick|
by Laura Middleton, friend of the author and limerick super-genius
If the Pembrook Park (a.k.a. Austenland) brochure were written in limericks:
Our sales pitch:
If you're seeking a lovely vacation,
Or you've got (shhh!) a Darcy fixation,
Then come and make haste!
We'll keep it all chaste
But won't skimp on the fervent flirtation.
Forgo the hot sun of the beaches.
Walk gardens, taste sweet English peaches,
Enjoy our terrain.
Did we mention the men all wear breeches?
For one of our gents you'll be fallin'.
Any reticence we'll be forstallin',
'Cause your corset's tight strain
Cuts the blood to your brain;
Then, any old guy looks like Colin.
