It’s Monday morning and time for a limerick or two! Send in your own or here’s a prompt for you –
Here are a few limericks to brighten your Monday:
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
