Laughing Along With A Limerick

It’s Monday morning and limerick time! Send in your own or here’s a prompt for you –


Here are a few limericks to brighten your Monday:


I really should get out of bed
But there are so many books to be read
I’m meant to be working
Instead I’m just shirking
Inviting stories into my head.

There once was a woman from Strood
Who simply loved all the food
She’d clean up her plate
And that of her mate
Then apologise for being so rude.

Trent’s World:

I shoulda been up with the sun
But lying here is work, not fun
Books by the bed
In a pile to be read
And I’m not moving till they’re done…

Kim Smith:

There once was a doggy so needy
She sat looking with eyes that were beady
I gave her a bite
But then, with a fright
She nipped my fingers! So greedy!!


After yoga a student did ache.

Her remedy was to eat cake.

Her stomach did bloat,

So it was easy to float

But alas foiled her goal to awake!

Val Fish:

I could have said I was confused

Or a better word could be used

But I calculated


Would just leave everyone bemused.

‘Twas a nightmare, a terrible fright

Count Dracula was taking a bite

But then I awoke

It was hubby’s sick joke

He slept downstairs the rest of the night.

    He he! I’m at school right now, but I’ll be back!

  2. Ritu says:

    Oh, what a ghastly sight!
    Wish I’d not switched on the light
    Unplucked and uncoloured
    No, please, just stay covered
    You really did give me a fright!

    An ode to the awfulness that is Lockdown, meaning we are all rather more au naturel than we might actually want to be!

    You gave me a fright,

    When you called round the other night,

    Dressed in black from head to toe,

    I couldn’t tell if you were friend or foe,

    Never before had I seen such a sight.

    Cheers Paul 😁

    There was a young lady from Hove.
    Who burnt her hand on the stove.
    She shouted o god
    Then she said sod,
    And threw it into the road.

    There was a young man from Kent.
    Who ate no food in lent.
    Apart from a tart
    He was meaning to start
    In secret, alone in his tent.

    Cheers John

  5. A woman jumped up in a fright!
    Her husband had been in a fight.
    He had been beaten
    By a tiny little kitten
    Which had scratched him and taken a bite!

  6. Rae Reads says:

    This is not a limerick but a parody written by a seventh grader:
    Jack and Jill went up the hill
    To work out all their muscles,
    Near the top they met old Drac
    He loved their red corpuscles.

    Is that scary enough?

  7. Valerie Fish says:

    He’d never had such a fright
    He turned a deathly shade of white
    When mother in law
    Who’s with us no more
    Came calling that dark stormy night

  8. John Reynolds says:

    There was a young man from Spain
    Who went on a journey by train
    He went down the track
    But never came back
    They said it affected his brain.

    Cheers, John
