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 FAKE.

Keith Channing:

Political cynic, 2020:

Politicians? They really are fake.

So many appear on the take.

Not out in the open

But still, I’ll bet, hoping

Some personal profit to make.

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

The fake mona Lisa was taken

By an art thief who wanted to waken

An urge for fine art

And this was a start

He couldn’t afford to the Louvre, to hasten.


She was as fake as could be

With boobs to rival Dolly

Inflated lips

Liposuctioned hips

A real life plastic Barbie!

Paul Mastaglio:

I’m droping this line

Hoping to make a rhyme

But it feels a bit fake

When this is all I can make

So better come back next time.

Trent’s World:

There once was a man named Harlow

Who tried to sell a fake van Gogh

He swore it was true

Cost a million or two

Now he’s in jail for a decade or so.


Seriously, give me a dang break

Sincerity, yours is clearly fake

You….. promised to be there

Said you really care…

I don’t need this headache or heartache.

Sharon Tingle:

Pssst … Hi there, you handsome rake

Hey babe, just fifty dollar for a make

What? You not interested? … your loss!

Wait, oh …I’m sorry boss

Just pretending; tis all a fake!

Ok, so here’s the thing …

I’m so beautiful – I bling!

But “this me” has left me penniless

In my attempts to remake and impress

Fake hair, nose and “cups”, I gifted me in Beijing.

You know it’s really sad

When journalists are called bad

After working so hard

Reporting news even when barred

Calling it “Fake news”, sir, really makes me mad!

Sarian Lady:

Some food I like to bake.

Some food I’m afraid I fake.

A full Christmas dinner,

And I’m on a winner.

Not so with a shop-bought cake.

Valerie A Fish:

His whole persona was nowt but a fake

Found out too late he was just on the take

Reeled me in with his lies

Then said his goodbyes

Leaving chaos and heartbreak in his wake.

Chel Owens:

“I’m not fond of red velvet cake,”

Said the chef, as she set out to bake.

Acrylics all washed

Blonde curls all coiffed

She added, “I’ve never liked fake.”

  1. Scary poems upset me in bed.
    Can’t sleep fearing I’ll wake up dead
    And if I spend time
    Reading blood-curdling rhyme
    You know it’ll fill me with dread

    There once was a lass called Mary
    Who was a little bit scary
    She’d hide behind a wall
    And give you a call
    Making your skin stand up all hairy.

    Cheers Paul 😁

  4. It’s scary that an orange man
    Could be running the world again
    He has no compassion
    But lies with a passion
    Tomorrow we will see his plan

  5. Kim Smyth says:

    Oops, did I miss last week?

    To me, Halloween was not hairy
    No candy, no goblins, no fairy,
    I did try all night
    Gave myself no such fright
    Viewing movies supposedly scary!

  6. sarianladyaolcom says:

    I once had a friend called Mary
    Who liked to dress up as a fairy
    She loved to feed
    on honey and mead
    And became quite hairy and scary.

  7. TanGental says:

    Being part troll, Jane was excessively hairy
    Which sad to relate made her naturally scary.
    She tried depilation
    But to her consternation
    She still looked more furball than fairy.

    El Día De Los Muertos
    Celebrated by Los Mexicanos
    With altars of scary sugar skulls and bread
    Homage is paid to those now dead
    Scary fun fiestas para nosotros.
