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.
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.
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
A real life plastic Barbie!
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.
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.
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!
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.
“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.”
