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 ZOOM:
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!
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.”
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Old-time rocket-shaped lolly named Zoom
Juice-filled frozen fruit flavours go boom
In your mouth layers sweet
Melt to mush as you eat
Wooden lolly stick sucked till exhumed
Although Fab was my favourite vice
With its hundreds and thousands on ice
Adding crumbly feel
And exciting appeal
To a fun lolly sure to entice.
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!
She begged me to leave her blasted room
Fine, I’ll just zoom away on my broom
I’m going to the moon.
She’ll miss me real soon
Can’t believe she called me a buffoon.
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.
Curious…meetings via Zoom
“Distancing” limits folks sharing room
“Zoom” suggests things move with speed
But regarding its end, Covid sees no need
Shuffling through sweaty days, I watch poems bloom.
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.
And Robbie’s from last week when the prompt was spell:
“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.
