Happy Monday! It’s 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 FOOL:
I felt like I needed to cool
So went for a dip in the pool
Like a bird I did fly
But the pool was bone dry
Small wonder I felt like a fool.
I eat at the ritz as a rule.
The food really makes me drool!
From canapés to icecream
Their chefs are a top team
Especially the great gooseberry fool!
There was a young man from Chad
Who at times, was a bit of a lad.
He stole a red car,
and a one-string guitar
Then, chased down the road, by his dad.
A young man from Liverpool
Thought he looked rather cool
Music blaring from inside
His souped-up ride
To be honest, he just looked a fool!
The town’s bully was such a fool
Driving around being cool
Or so he thought
Until he was brought
To his knees by a very big tool!
Don’t be a fool, giving place to despair
Tearing what remains of too-thin hair
Step back from life’s crazy whirligig
Before you’re forced to invest in wig
Eat big bowl of fruity sherbet, lift faith-filled prayer
There was an old lady from Poole
Who, in lockdown, ate nothing but spinach.
When asked why she did it
She replied, ‘You may think I’m an idiot
But I assure you I’m nobody’s fool!’
