Wt he dd – bth cmprhnsly destroy!

(This in regular English)
Ref the ‘Limerick’ sent by Twitter, here it is English:

Here comes irrepressible Dongleboy
‘Mong others, Tweeting gives him tremendous joy
Combined Limerick
To make it look slick
What he did – both comprehensively destroy!

Dongleboy got reply from rramxx,
For once the criticism was excess,
Twitterick wasn’t bad
Only it didn’t add
One more chance will make it a success.

Now you’re getting the hang (of it) Brram,
If not $, will win at leas’ ten clam;
Quick ‘n really fast
(Till fervour does last);
But make the last line to exclaim ‘Hey Ram’.

Must say that I ain’t doing it for the clam
‘Twas only to come to the aid of Srram
Give him a back pat
Save from your ra-ta-ta-t
All first attempts looks like one from the pram

Methinks you now can from the pram clamber off
Can see the steps of a (newly born) calf;
Go on ‘ith it,
Collect rhymes kit -
Obvious word for the last line made me laugh!

The white flag calls a truce,
If this goes on will do a Bruce
Let’s now stop
Or Rama ‘ll hop
On another occasion put this knowledge to use

Ok, you’ve now finally called it a truce
after we’d a rollicking Limerick cruise;
You’ve got it right
3rd and 4th’re bright;
But my grouse: all have escaped without any bruise.
