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 HAUNT.

Keith Channing:

How often have you seen a ghost?

Asked Marvin, our affable host.

Until we convene

No-one will have seen

The house that is haunted the most.

Kim Smyth:

A dude once went for a jaunt

Looking for a good place to haunt

A corral he chose

The cowboy at once knows

‘Cause his horses before didn’t flaunt.

The Hidden Edge:

My good friend and one of my team,

Is naughty, or so it would seem,

She goes out for a jaunt,

To her favourite haunt

But in truth, it’s is all in a dream!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

I’ll haunt my house and make them go

Away from here, make a good show.

My family really are the worst

They eat all my food, fit to burst.

I’ll wear a bed sheet, with added glow!

Paul Mastaglio:

“This ain’t any old haunt,”

I hear you taunt.

“It’s my secret cave

Only visited by the brave,

So join me on this special jaunt.”

Rene Sparrow:

My mind’s a haven for gray withered haunts…

Naught else to do, so they hurl their old taunts…

They’re not very pauciloquent in their spew—

But why rail in 5 words when 50 will do?

As if ghosts’ vast vocab is worthy of flaunts!

Linking People 2003:

How to escape the haunt?

Are the ghosts playing truant?

Unknown faces disappear in light,

No one has to fight or flight.

Tired of seeing shadows flaunt!

Geoff Le Pard:

For we verbalists, Haunt

Refuses to rhyme with Aunt;

And while I would love

To be able to prove

It really can, I really can’t.

    Talk to the trees
    If you please
    But I prefer a plant
    To have a good rant
    It really is the bees knees!

    Cheers Paul 😁

  2. Pansies, or so I am told,
    Live in places you may think too cold.
    Always in bloom,
    No time for gloom,
    Their beauty’s a thing to behold.

  3. trentpmcd says:

    There are several more planets to bag
    Where I can plant my flag
    Around our sun
    Worlds to be won
    If rocket prices didn’t make me gag

    Bob worked in a plant that made beer
    And took some samples, here and there
    But the boss caught wind
    That he had sinned
    So that bit of tipple cost him dear

  4. Kim Smyth says:

    I long for Spring so I can plant
    Flowers, herbs, but trees-I can’t
    My old man don’t like to mow
    Around them tree, now don’t you know
    His wishes are for me to grant

  5. Rabbie Burns the Scottish bard chose,
    To write both poetry and prose;
    To plant his strong views,
    On life, lust and booze,
    And ‘Luve’ who’s like a red, red, rose!

  6. sarianladyaolcom says:

    I’m compelled to have a good rant,
    ‘Bout nourishing myself on a plant.
    All animals and birds,
    Should be seen and be heard.
    Not eaten or worn, I just can’t.

  7. You’ll really like this new plant
    Said the very grumpy old giant
    It’s a beanstalk you see
    you can come and visit me
    I’ll add Jack while the dough is still pliant

  9. Linkingpeople2003 says:

    Photosynthesis occurs in plant leaves.
    Leaf has chlorophyll which needs,
    Atmosphere to provide carbon dioxide,
    Not oxygen to form radicle oxide,
    The sunlight presence please!

    In memory of useless French lessons of my youth…

    Said golden haired Laura La Plante
    I would if I could, but I can’t.
    For I am too small
    It’s no use at all
    So ou est la plume de ma tante?
