15. Limerick: A lonely young farmer from Rhyl …

1st: Mrs Mary Keepings, Aberteifi

A lonely young farmer from Rhyl
Fell in love with a milkmaid called Jill
She soon waved him goodbye
After milking him dry
Now he's broke, and lonelier still.

2nd: Peter N Williams, Delaware, USA

A lonely young farmer from Rhyl
Kissed his girl by the old woollen mill.
When asked by a cop
His amours to stop,
Said, “No. They give me a thrill.”

3rd: Dona Barnes, Y Bala
A lonely young farmer from Rhyl
Went out to the fair for a thrill,
And came home arm in arm
All the way to the farm
With a ‘Jack' whom he thought was a ‘Jill'.
