Not long after the world had cooled down (or had warmed up; I'm never sure which way round it was) and the dinosaurs had perforce to reject the concept of immortality, I was immersed in the economics module of my degree course, when I read an article about a student who had not paid enough attention during his economics lectures (as you do), and consequently found himself at a loose end during his exam. So, the article said, he wiled away the time by composing economic-themed limericks on his answer paper. What a splendid idea, I thought, so I composed the following while avoiding eye-contact with my lecturer. At least I had the wit to write them during lectures.



Ode to Joy, (or economics, if you will).

Thomas Malthus was born long ago
and so was David Ricardo.
They were both in fine fettle
when put on their mettle
by economics, both micro and macro.

There once was an economist called Keynes
whose backside contained all his brains.
He was thick as a plank,
for his mind was a blank,
and his theories would give you the pains.
