Rhymes for our Times by Ian Aitchison
Humour is still never far from Ian’s thoughts when scripting his beautifully constructed limericks, an art he’s been working on for decades. And what an excellent format he’s developed in wryly commenting on the previous week’s news in his weekly slot in the Rochdale Observer.
This book contains a wide selection of Ian’s witty limericks for your enjoyment, so enjoy them with a smile.
“Ian’s limericks in the Rochdale Observer have given both real pleasure as well as witty and sometimes incisive insights into the life of Rochdale, its residents and the wider world. Long may he continue to put pen and ink to paper or fingers to keyboard to entertain us in the knowledge that his reward is the admiration of his readers. As one of his ‘victims’, I can only offer a genuine thank you.” Tony Lloyd, Member of Parliament for Rochdale
“Ian shows that he is well-versed in life about town with this selection of his weekly comic limericks from the Rochdale Observer. Couching each poem in limericks is clever – but it’s the laugh-out-loud punchlines that show he is a master of his craft.” Neil Emmott, Leader of Rochdale Council
“Ian’s words conjure up a world as experienced through the prism of both our shared heritage and current experiences. He has the gift of bringing a smile to our faces with the occasional knowing nod of our heads.” Steve Cooke, Arts Columnist
