It’s so good to be back and reading your limericks again. You produced some wonderful creations last week! Let’s see what you can do with this week’s prompt:
Last week’s prompt was BACK. Here are you limericks:
I’m undone, alas and alack
There’s a spider half way up my back.
Forgive me my flinches,
It’s more than six inches
And has an enormous egg sack!
Esther announced, “I’m back!
Let’s get this challenge on track!
Now, Lance was my sitter,
But now I’m much fitter
I’m totally up for this craic!”
New Year; “time for a change”, thought Zack,
From the threat of his own blackjack.
He struck that voice imp
That sends his flair limp –
Getting his genius back on track!
Back to the future? she said
Where all my books I have read
Then new ones I’ll find
First editions all signed
And sell them for millions instead.
When I think back at the past of my life
and my life of being a wife
I strike a good pose
despite the shape of my nose
Since my image just won’t be my strife.
Haste ye back, Bony Tony.
We miss your wit at the Frog and Pony.
Although you’re a ghost,
We raise you a toast:
Single malt and a glass of Peroni.
Once, I had a back issue
I cried and needed a tissue
The doctor fixed me
With exercise and therapy
Will it stay well, haven’t a clue!
You can reflect on your life and your lack,
but nothing can come from this tack,
There’s one thing that’s so true
each day brings something new
and in life, you can never go back.
I’m a bit of a limerick hack
Rhyming and rhythm skills I lack
But when it’s done
It’s just for fun
And I’m glad Esther’s back.
I fell back on the tip of a tack
It punctured my skin, I’m chagrined
A tack in my back
A chagrin ‘cause of skin
Now I’m back where I started—begin!
Linking People 2003:
Lying supine over pillow under lumbar back,
Maintains lumbar lordosis preventing ache in back!
Good to give back to society better life tricks,
Anticipating danger ahead must move back is one of the tricks.
Those having social concern, everyone should back!
