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 make you smile this Monday. The prompt was DARE:
A housewife from southwest Kentucky
Was locally hailed as quite plucky.
In response to a dare
She leapt high in the air.
What she landed in, she thought was lucky.
Old Sue, always up for a dare
Decided to shave off her hair
Bald pate now gleaming
She looked at us, beaming
“Wax and polish, that’s my new self-care!”
A woman was given a dare.
Be abundant to those in your care.
She smothered her son.
Gave her daughter the sun.
And discovered more love to share.
Do you dare,
To pay your fare,
To go to another place,
To put a smile on your face,
Just because it’s there.
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.
I dare to dream
said the Bream
of cheese and pickles,
worth dimes and nickels,
as he slowly swam up the stream.
A gloomy, blue, plushy, young bear
‘Mongst others of rainbow-type hair,
Said, “Maybe it’s time
“We gave up our rhyme;
“After all, hardly any dare care.”
“Au contraire,” said the bear with a heart.
“They only need somewhere to start.”
Holding hands, in a line –
Grumpy joined them this time,
“Care bear stare!” They all did their part.
She grabbed life with gusto, not as a dare
Was so much better than a life unaware
To work she did go,
with an ebb and a flow
Then came home and let down her hair!
