The Winning Limerick by Judith Mee

In tones learned, keen and emphatic
We've conferred about things numismatic,
With philately too
And coins, not a few,
And displays electronic and static.

We've had speakers both quiet and phlegmatic,
And others more loud and dogmatic,
Now we draw to a close,
To join thousands of those
In the traffic queues, long and erratic.
