Two limericks about a local idEntity

A personage great in the girth
whose wealth was an outcome of birth
exclaimed, ‘It’s a sign!’
All this money, all mine!’
She didn’t know what she was worth.
 

There was a poor poet from Perth
whose polemics were objects of mirth.
People wailed, ‘If your verse
should become any worse
it might be the end of the Earth!’

What do you think?
