There was an old man in Plymouth
Who had a set of false teeth
Once when he ate,
A piece of tough meat
His fake teeth fell off his mouth!

    Lovely poem. Enjoyed reading it. We need to extract as much humour as possible out of a Limerick. So, I don't think one should be a purist all the time. (Report) Reply

    I liked the idea of this and it was clever but not a true limerick the first two lines should rhyme and the second two as well with the last line rhyming with the first eg

    There was an old man from Leith
    Who had a set of false teeth
    but when when he ate meat
    he found it a such a feat
    For a piece always went underneath

    Not a brilliant example but it gives you the idea. However it was a valiant effort never the lass

    Yes, never the lass. I enjoy humour on both sides of the poem.

    there once was a WOMAN who drove a Plymouth,
