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 –

FIFTY

Here are a few limericks to make you smile this Monday. The prompt last week was SHOWER.

Keith Channing:

When it has been dry for a time,

A shower of rain is sublime.

I really like summer,

Though winter’s a bummer,

But spring is the easiest to rhyme!

Lance Greenfield:

It’s terribly wet down on the Gower,

Where the forecast is always so dour.

It may appear to be fine

When the sun, it doth shine,

But we’re sure to be in for a shower.

Kim Smyth:

I once took a duck in the shower

Played with it for over an hour

The water got cool

And I felt such a fool

Cause my duck, he did run out of power!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

I gave my plants a good shower

Some food for my beautiful flowers

A whole lot of love

Just got them in bud

Only leaves on my sweet flower bower.

Paul Mastaglio:

To shower someone with praise

Is a wonderful craze

Make them feel great

And they could be your mate

Perhaps until the end of days.

Trent’s World:

A man once lived in a tower

That didn’t have a working shower

As you might think

There was an awful stink

And all were overwhelmed by its power.


They say a shower in spring

Flowers later will bring

But before the bud

All is mud

And I’ve sunk to my thing.

The Hidden Edge:

President Dwight D. Eisenhower,

Had great ideas in the shower

Some time on the bog,

Would oft lift his fog,

And restore his mighty brain power.

Ritu:

Janice wanted a new shower

With some oomph, just a little more power

But it used too much water

Much more than it oughtta

So now hubby, John won’t allow her!

Linking People 2003:

SHOWER is an artificial rain,

Having in bathroom to attain,

Over all cleanliness,

With soap for freshness,

Radiance comes again!

  1. For a while, I believed my friend Trevor;
    I thought I could go on for ever.
    For years it felt nifty
    To stop work at fifty
    You did it? I wasn’t that clever.

  2. Fifty is the new thirty they say?
    I don’t believe in that today!
    My hair is getting greyer
    And heavier on the weigher
    And I don’t have the energy to play!

    Young Gina was nearing fifty
    And her age had made her more thrifty
    Upcycling junk
    Giving old things some funk
    Her friends thought her quite nifty!

  4. Kim Smyth says:

    They threw me a party at age fifty
    Now the old girl’s nearing sixty
    No party this year
    Cause ‘Rona is here
    I’ll just have to do something thrifty.

    I just bought fifty new books
    I couldn’t resist the blurbs’ hooks!
    But shelves are dear
    And space is rare
    So now they fill the crannies and nooks

  6. Paul Mastaglio says:

    Fifty, half way to the ton
    No time to get undone
    Buckle in for the ride
    We’re on your side
    On the way, is a lot more fun.

    Cheers Paul 😁

    SECOND puberty happens at fifty!
    YOUTHFULNESS comes back at fifty!
    FIFTY fifty probability of toss!
    FIFTY is not just half!
    FULL of life at fifty!

    SECOND puberty happens at fifty,
    Youthfulness makes shifty.
    Fifty fifty probability of toss,
    No more remains for boss,
    To take decisions with maturity!

  9. Everyone knows a suave gent, called Dwight,
    Who sees all things in black or in white,
    He might well want to play
    With fifty shades of grey,
    Relax; and be not (quite so) uptight!

    Whilst reading Fifty Shades of Grey
    On your morning commute, you may
    Turn fifty shades of red
    At their antics in bed
    It was never like that in my day!

  11. I set sail for fifty degrees East
    In search of the wise purple priest
    I found him in Baku
    Where he cooked me a stew
    Sharing his knowledge: a huge feast.

    You have to be rather nifty
    When you reach the age of fifty
    To play at being cool
    While looking neither a fool
    Nor more than a touch shifty

    Fifty ants marched along our gate
    Carrying carcass bits fifty times their weight.
    Rushed I indoor to end their work-day
    But returned the can without a spray.
    Such determination, I could not fumigate.
