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 GIFT.
A friendship that’s suffered a rift
Can sometimes be healed by a gift.
An ill thought-out token
Can leave one heartbroken;
And you may end up getting short shrift!
The other day, I received a gift,
I thought would give me a much-needed lift,
But when opened, I saw
It was actually for next door,
And Boy! was I really Miffed.
We all like to get a cool gift
Yet at times can cause a real rift
“Hers is better!”
Thought the setter
So the terrier was really miffed!
Today I got a big gift
Which gave my spirits a lift
It’s an LP, (long player)
But I have no record player!
Through junk shops I will have to sift!
Esther, without a fuss
Gives great micro challenges to us
A gift to a writer
Makes our days much brighter
Writing words on Monday without a cuss.
I had a gift
But I left it in the lift
I don’t know if it went up or down
I fret and frown
I’m missing my gift.
My Nephew, Alec, who loves his cricket,
Is a bowler with a golden ticket,
If you catch my drift,
Tis a splendid gift,
To yell HowZat! When taking a wicket.
Private Frederick Hitch – a true hero
There was a proud soldier called Hitch,
Won V.C. for brave act at Rorke’s Drift.
His medal though lost,
Was bought back at a cost
And displayed at museum: a gift.
And the moral of the story is . . .
I once had a gift-horse called Dennis,
Who refused to visit the dentist.
His teeth were so hairy
That his mouth was quite scary,
And worse, he had bad halitosis.
Opened a bag of birthday gift,
A present given as a thrift!
Pussy cat was her birthday gift!
Slept with pussy cat in kist!
She has a gift of gab to list!
I’m a sleek young horse named Gift,
Like lightning I really am swift.
You’ll be in the money.
Your days will be sunny.
Don’t look in my mouth. Get my drift?
And here are two from Joy Smith that I forgot to post last week! The prompt was ‘suit’. Huge apologies, Joy.
The man in the lavendar suit
Always gave the good girls a hoot
One day at the wheel
He did have a feel
And then they gave him the boot!
Carmen Miranda with her hat full of fruit
Would never be seen dead in a suit
All bananas or melon
Or a whole row of lemon
Wins the jackpot, and oodles of loot!
