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 CASH.
A singer called something like Donny;
Was cute, and his voice was quite bonny.
He wasn’t so flash
But made loads of cash.
I’m wrong! His real name was Johnny.
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.
Win cash with our lottery
Or second prize pottery
The leaflet came
With a bingo game
No chance its just flummery!
Cash, it rings a bell
I believe it did very well
It went round and round
Did that dear old pound
Until Covid sounded its death knell.
There once was a mobster named Fred
“Always pay in cash,” he said
But he used a card
Alerting Scotland Yard
And the villain wound up dead.
Frank, the financial adviser,
Was often seen as a miser,
He was never that flash,
With his good client’s cash,
And they were always the wiser!
I want to grow my stash
But I just ain’t got the cash
My book pile’s so tall
Yet I still want em all
Too many books? Balderdash!
Mum always told me that “Cash is Queen”
But that too much money is seen as obscene.
My Gran had other ideas of what makes wealth.
“Be happy and look after your health.”
A great lesson to learn while still a mere teen.
Cowboy Frank fingered his curled moustache
As he rode into the town of Nash.
His one aim: to collect a saddle-full bounty
For capturing gunslinger one-eyed Monty.
Dang! He grinned, “Dert’ll be a load a cash.”
Linking People 2003:
CASH crops like coffee, tea and cotton,
Bring cash from market unforgotten!
Since cash crops are not consumed at home,
Cash inflow is handsome,
Sure to be gotten!
