Laughing Along With A Limerick

It’s Monday morning once again and limerick time! 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 LOOK:

Keith Channing:

The redoubtable captain named Cook
Thought Canada well worth a look
At great risk of failure
He sailed to Australia
That’s what ended up in a book.

Geoff Le Pard:

A doctor called Frederick Lee
Tried sex at his desk with nurse Fi.
It wasn’t successful
And rather too stressful
Till she dressed in her full PPE.


George was a confident chap
Who’d woo nurses with banter and chat
Till one Thursday Louise
Made George’s blood freeze
When she told him she’d give him the clap.

Paul Mastaglio:

Just one look,

That’s all it took,

And I was smitten,

Now got myself a kitten,

That’s okay in my book.

Trent’s World:

There once was a very naughty book
That had a most intriguing hook
The photo on front
Was truly quite blunt
Enticing everyone to look


The woman had a look that could kill
If the intention of her glance was ill
But once in a while
She would wink and smile
Which they say was quite a thrill.

Christine Mallaband-brown:

Watch out for the train, said the bear.
To her cub, who didn’t know it was there.
You may not see it coming,
When you are out running,
Be safe, – your hi-viz you should wear!

Chelsea Owens:

He sat at the glass, drank his tea

He waited, you see, to see she.

Surprised, then, was he

When she said to cease:

From her lawyer, a letter, received.

Kim Smyth:

There once was a book worth a look
The page-turner had every hook
Language so easy
Made reading quite breezy
A catchy title was all that it took!

    Jim slipped into the room
    The time would come, very soon
    Bare arse balanced on sill
    He sat very still
    And shouted, “How’s that for a full moon?”

    Sorry… 🤪

  2. Here’s my attempt:

    As I lay in the grass, all content
    The night winds appearing God-sent
    I gaze up at the moon
    and start to assume
    that some bugger has stolen my tent.

  3. I wanted to fly to the moon
    But my grandmother said, “It’s too soon.
    There’s no-one to fire us
    Locked down with this virus
    And you don’t even have a balloon!”

    Boom boom 😀


  4. On a glorious June afternoon
    I went flying beneath a balloon
    With my head in the stars
    I was heading for Mars
    But fell hopelessly short of the Moon

    or …..

    If but for the limits of flight
    To the stars I would take you tonight
    On this afternoon
    We could walk on the moon
    And the Earth would be our satellite.

    I hope it is over soon
    That monthly bit of loon
    I run with the pack
    With hair on my back
    During every full moon

  7. I’ve been, a few times, to the moon
    In the lovely summer days of June,
    I went in a rocket
    I stored in my pocket,
    And journeyed there with a baboon!

    There was a young lady from Rome.
    Who took out a very big loan.
    It was far big to pay back,
    So, to keep her on track,
    She bet horses over the phone.
    Cheers John
