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 last week was VOTE.

Keith Channing:

The last time I went out to vote

I tasted some bile in my throat

Seems each candidate

Wants the food off my plate

I might just as well get my coat.

Richmond Road:

Debate number one … what theatrics!

Diagnosed by the best Psychiatrics

Upon this sinking boat

It is soon time to vote

In a race between two geriatrics.

I’ll be casting my vote on a hunch

Between two of the worst in the bunch

It’s all up in the air

On a wing and a prayer

I can’t cope. There’s no hope. Of free lunch.

Christine Mallaband-brown:

When deciding which way to vote

Consider the words from their throat

If they have mad ideas

And raise up your fears

Don’t go for the one that’s a dolt!

Paul Mastaglio:

An idea I must float

So please take note

Because if you agree

It could bear fruit, you see

If only you would give me your vote.

Trent’s World:

There is a vote this year

Actually, it’s getting quite near!

With all that’s been

I hope we win

If not, I’ll shed many a tear.

They say it’s majority rule

And a vote is the citizen tool

But when the the minority wins

And elects a man who sins

I feel I’ve been made a fool.

Chel Owens:

The creatures all gathered to vote

For Turtle, or Myrtle the goat.

Turtle said, “Taxes!”

Whilst Myrtle, “Relaxes!”

Votes counted, they ‘ppointed some oats.

Zack and Zelda:

Election time, the patriots vote

If they can parse ‘tween truth and gloat

Real issues often get lost in kerfuffle

Big promises, bigger egos tussle

We-the-people hold breath, hope to stay afloat.

  1. Ooh- it’s acrostic time:

    Please don’t ever ask me for money
    Unless you’ve a reason that’s funny
    Releasing hard cash
    Seems somehow slapdash
    Except for the famed Easter Bunny

    It’s close to Halloween, so…

    Leella was working under a curse
    So she dressed up as a hospital nurse
    She found Wizard Ted
    And cut off his head
    Then carried it home in her purse

    A purse is a useful bag
    Carried by princess and poor hag
    You can bring your whole life
    Without much strife
    But too much and your arm will sag

  3. Kim Smyth says:

    There once was a girl with an old purse
    Who was seeking advice from a nurse
    “Get a new smaller one”, she said
    Or a bad back you will dread
    And you don’t ever want that said curse!

  4. Paul Mastaglio says:

    You spit and curse
    When there’s no money in your purse
    But that’s OK
    When you shop today
    Use your card and don’t be terse.

    Cheers Paul 😁

    If ever I needed to curse
    It’s when I’ve forgotten my purse.
    I arrive at the shops
    And spend lots and lots.
    Then find I have to diverse.

  6. Chel Owens says:

    “Stay back, now!” said Wendel the witch.
    She wanted to scratch at an itch
    To cast a new curse
    On everyone’s verse
    So writers could fill just one niche.

    My heart goes out to you all, for the political conundrum you have to live through. You have the right spirit though, might as well have a laugh. 🙂
