    Limericks of South African Towns and Place Names

    To start with:

    A limerick writer's a fighter
    His rhymes must be tauter and tighter
    His overworked muse
    Cannot be obtuse
    Or he'll end up a trite lighter writer.



    An innovative Chef called Karola
    Invented a drink Qoque-a-Qola
    With calls from afar
    It was sealed in a jar
    And delivered to ZONDI and ZOLA.

    Young Vusi whose Baba was Themba

    When asked who she was young Lindiwe

    They asked if I'm really that hungwe!

    The Swallows came in from MOROKA
    To prepare their home ground for the socka

    I can't click the X in XIKUNDU

    So take me, please, back to the bundu.

    To the Northern Transvaal came Diablo
    Who fancied a town called XIGALO
    He gave a loud snort
    It was not what he thought -
    No place there for him, a gigolo.

    The buildings in lovely XIHOKO
    Are genuine Sotho rococo
    But just down the road
    Lives a great noisy toad
    Who sings 'neath the giant portico.

    Linia and Zinia were terribille
    Most times being quite incorrigibille
    But when it boils down
    As to who'll 'do him down'
    Not Linia but, always, ZINIAVILLE

    The buildings in lovely XIHOKO
    Are genuine Sotho rococo.

    The columns are Doric
    Which makes all that art 'Doricoco.'

    When Roberto went down to ZINGWINI

    'Tis 'toughies' time down in QUDENI
