Laughing Along With A Limerick

Here’s your Monday smile – 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 SPELL:

Keith Channing:

Some warriors in far distant lands

Paint bold, coloured lines on their hands

Each mark tells a story

Love, victory or glory

Look well, ’tis a spell, not demands.

Christine Mallaband-brown:

Now Merlin’s an ancient old wizard

He can turn you into a lizard.

To avoid this strong spell

Just run like hell!

Into a convenient blizzard!


I need to come up with a spell

To get rid of that dastardly smell

The curry was hot

I can tell from your bot

I’m living in curry fart hell!

Trent’s World:

She asked him to sit for a spell

When he said he didn’t feel well

Does she have plan

For this recumbent man?

Only time will tell…

She put a spell on me

As i was trying to flee

Now I’m stuck

In magical muck

I hope she sets me free!

Oh, what a terrible punk

Lord only knows what he thunk

His math was Hell

And he couldn’t spell

It was natural he would flunk.

Kim Smyth:

There once was a girl who spun tells

As if she were under a spell

Her words were so silly

Her subjects, willy nilly

Nobody understood her, oh well!


Hocus pocus, that’s hardly a spell

At least, not one a good witch would tell

Ditch the mumble jumble

Or we’re gonna rumble

For a hefty price I’ve got some to sell.

Paul Mastaglio:

Take a walk down the alphabet,

You might recognise the letters yet,

Pick the right ones and you’ll have a story to tell,

Pick the wrong ones and the words won’t spell,

It’ll be a tale you’ll want to forget.

Hocus pocus,

Just gotta focus,

Working on a spell,

I think you can tell,

Perhaps I’ll get another locust.

That’s your lot,

I’ve lost the plot,

Have to stop for a spell,

Until I get well,

Then I’ll be back on the dot.

  1. Just for fun:

    Zoom is an interesting word
    Many meanings, or so I have heard.
    It could be a lens,
    Talking with friends,
    Or rushing around – how absurd!

  2. This started as zoom but flew off on a tangent. You might as well see it anyway.

    Riding a young horse called Lairy
    Hoofing it straight through the prairie
    You see it’s such fun
    My life on the run
    Evading the carabinieri

    Zoom means to go fast,
    So you won’t be last,
    But you’re going to a virtual meet,
    Not to some place on the street,
    Making travelling a thing of the past.

    Cheers Paul 😁

    She said “Can you get out the room?
    Can’t you see I’m trying to Zoom?
    I’m so full of stress
    The house is a mess
    And I’m trying to hide all my gloom!”

    As soon as mum hits full bloom
    Some babies do like to zoom
    They come when they’re ‘ready’
    No waiting for ‘steady’
    When it comes to exiting the womb

  5. Hi ESther, this is my limerick for zoom:
    He sat on his cellular phone in the room
    Having just finished a meeting on Zoom
    What a frightening sight
    He expression; dark as night
    The seed of a monster was starting to bloom.

    Last week I wrote these but forgot to come back and share here:
    “Stay away!” the witch did yell
    I’m already feeling most unwell
    hand sanitizer didn’t work
    and my keep well spell had a quirk
    now I’ve no sense of smell
    Hansel and Gretel could quickly tell
    the witch was not feeling at all well
    she kept herself hidden away
    with a mask and hand spray
    Covid-19 was impervious to her spell

  7. The telescope was set on Zoom
    He could see the man in the moon
    I’ll get in my rocket
    With some cheese in my pocket
    To feed old moony real soon!

  8. Ooh, ooh. I just thought of this one:

    I saw, as I entered the room,
    My wife with a man from Khartoum.
    My, God, what is this?
    I asked with a hiss.
    She replied , “I just met him on Zoom.”

    To be a bird in the air
    And zoom from here to there
    Learning to fly
    To travel the sky
    Leaping clouds without a care

  10. Kim Smyth says:

    There once was a car that went zoom
    Its owner “drove” it across the room
    Well, he was three,
    So zooming you see,
    Was how he got over his gloom!

    With zoom, we’ve begun to obsess,
    on the question of how we should dress?
    Do we wear full regalia?
    Or bare genitalia?
    Face to face, there was never this stress.

    Does Zoom work better than Skype?
    If not, then what’s the big hype?
    It’s free, mercy me,
    But all we can see –
    Your scalp and the chat you type.

    Another great quote, which I appreciate because I’m prone to bemoaning my ills to my best friend–and then putting an absurdly humorous spin on it, which makes us both laugh!
