Loved to write as far back as memory goes
Without any thought for a verse to compose
Poetic expressions of innate creativity
There was an old bugger called God,
who got a young virgin in pod.
This disgraceful behaviour
There was a Young Lady of Dorking,
Who bought a large bonnet for walking;
But its colour and size,
It started innocently enough
In the beginning
What's the name of your car, asked Michael
Forgot the name, it starts with ‘T', said Nichole
"What a strange car
Never heard of it so far.
There was an Old Man of Peru,
Who never knew what he should do;
So he tore off his hair,
And behaved like a bear,
O TAKE my hand, Walt Whitman!
Such gliding wonders! such sights and sounds!
Such join'd unended links, each hook'd to the next!
A limerick can be rather funny
when the syllables are on the money.
But when none of it fits
it can give you the shits
There was a Young Lady of Norway,
Who casually sat on a doorway;
When the door squeezed her flat,
She exclaimed, 'What of that?'
There was a Young Lady in White,
Who looked out at the depths of the Night;
But the birds of the air
The was a Young Lady of Bute,
Who played on a silver-gilt flute;
There was a Young Lady of Hull,
Who was chased by a virulent bull;
But she seized on a spade,
And called out, 'Who's afraid?'
There was a Young Lady whose chin,
Resembled the point of a pin;
So she had it made sharp,
And purchased a harp,
Once Michel threw Liza a ball
It hit her torso she did call
Wow, ‘Do you mean me doll? '
He laughed at and said ‘a mall'
There was a young lady of Niger
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger;
They returned from the ride
With the lady inside,
There was an Old Man in a boat,
Who said, 'I'm afloat! I'm afloat!'
When they said, 'No! you aint!'
He was ready to faint,
In a village, there lived a known thief
Who was very fond of eating fried beef
Ate it for breakfast n' lunch
For dinner and for brunch
To be able to laugh is a great boon
All worries it will melt down soon
It is nice to practise that art
Sure it will give life a kick start
There was a Young Lady whose nose,
Was so long that it reached to her toes;
So she hired an Old Lady,
Whose conduct was steady,

Time Limit For Limericks
Der Limerick packt "Anatomisch"
in Kurzverse recht ökonomisch.
Doch die guten -- o, nein! --
sind selten mal rein,
An advanced degree from the University of Limerick is required before one begins to dabble in in the dreadfully complex double limerick! Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets, but he never tangled with this fiendishly complicated beast! And I have even attempted the terrifying triple limerick! Tread lightly in your light verse, for hic sunt dracones ('here be dragons') …
The Platypus: a Double Limerick
‘A duel's sure overdue',
Some viewers might so view.
But is not a duel some kind of dance?
— War dance and dark shade of red romance,
The limerick is one of the most common and most popular forms of doggerel. This is one of my favorite limericks:
He always got drunk; an alcoholic
She ate chocolate; chocaholic
Orange asked an orange 'who are you? '
'I'm color' said the orange 'I'm an orange' said the fruit
'What's the difference between me nd you? '
'You are the colour of my skin on my roof'
Of nonsensical verse, un-anoint,
A pioneer that lacked not a point.
Poems with no punch line
On verge of asinine,
Honeymoon Not-So-Sweet, or, Clyde Lied!
(a limerick for adults and older teens)
by Michael R. Burch
