There once was an Ofsted inspector...

TES online staffroom contributors have been trying their hand at limericks about Ofsted. Quite a lot do not scan. Many are not limericks. But one or two offerings do show promise:

"A languages teacher named Claire Attempted creative 'pair share'

Cried Ofsted: 'Begone!

French kissing's a Non'

So she left for the Folies-Berg re."

And here, with slight amendments and a new last line, is another:

"There once was an Ofsted inspector Who looked just like Hannibal Lecter He dribbled and drooled His way around school Then grabbed hold of teacher and pecked her."

Any better suggestions win a free Ofsted inspection.
