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 FRIEND.
I once had a really good friend
Twas a thing I thought never would end
But when he shaved his beard
He looked totally weird
Like a pig, or at least its back end.
I thought you were my best friend
But when you asked me to lend
You a thousand pounds
To buy a pair of hounds
I knew our friendship must end!
Can you comprehend
What I intend
Be a listening ear
When you want someone near
To be your friend.
Faye was my very best friend-
On that, we could always depend-
Until that sad day-
She moved far away-
Now tethered by phones til the end.
I had believed I was better off as ‘lone-ranger’
Born with gifts, expertise to journey, ‘odd-stranger’
But older, some wiser, I’ve learned at life’s end
You can’t share with yourself like you do with a friend
This Christmas I won’t kneel alone by Lord’s manger.
Ajay Simon Richard:
Call for help, a friend.
Don’t wait till the end.
Friend in need is friend indeed.
Remember friends for good deed.
Don’t delay the discord to mend.
We have been together for decades
Sharing secrets and championing charades
A good friend you remained
Until you acted quite deranged
Accusing me of stealing those marmalades.
