As a conclusion to the first semester of the MBA, please enjoy this trio of limericks.
Reflections on Semester One
Time flies by so quickly. It’s hard to believe.
Seven modules are done, and now some reprieve.
After many hours of study
With a group or a buddy
Seems like yesterday we first met with Niamh.
New Colleagues and Friends
There once was a guy from the States
In Ireland he made some great mates
At the start of the year
Had a loneliness fear
But now he gives thanks to the Fates.
Ode to Kerrygold*
My friends oft hear when I start to mutter,
“I just really need some of that butter.”
After days good or bad
What can perk up a lad?
The thought gets my heart going aflutter.
With a colour so gold and yellow
My taste buds can’t help but say, “Hello”
I haul out the tub
Give bread a quick rub
And presto, I’m one happy fellow.
I have travelled thousands of miles
To the emeraldest of isles
And the best thing I’ve found,
I could eat by the pound
Is Kerrygold. It’s always worthwhile.
