Laughing Along With A Limerick

Here’s to a great new week! Your new limerick challenge is as follows:

POOL

Your challenge last week was to write a limerick using the word GREEN in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Keith Channing:

Good grief, it’s a five-letter word.
Reminding me this is absurd.
Esther wants a rhyme
Every flipping time
No wonder my eyes are all blurred!

Trent’s World:

Yesterday I watched the sky
And a little green man flew by
He was from Mars
Or one of the stars
But he never stopped to say “Hi!”

Kim Smyth:

Our grass is no longer green
The sun has been pretty mean
We water and mow
But still it won’t grow
Cause the heat is just obscene!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

There is a place Caldmore green.
It’s a place where I have been
It’s pronounced Kalma
Not exactly Karma
That’s the sound it makes it seems.

Val Fish:

Her indoors says we’re going green
I must confess I’m not all that keen
We’ve bins brown black and blue
What goes where, I’ve no clue
I’ll leave it all to the recycling queen.

TanGental:

A comic, when young and quite green
Thought nothing of being obscene;
But a life so splenetic
Can become quite frenetic.
Now sadly his act is now clean.

Ruth Scribbles:

The woman, she put down her head
She was tired, she wanted her bed
But it was the scene
Of something real green
A lizard was there and was dead.

That bird it shat on my arm
For a second I wished it real harm
The shat was not green
It was white like cream
I’m clean now, no cause for alarm.

Linking People 2003:

GREEN, colour between blue and yellow in spectrum heralds,
Her flashing green eyes coloured like grass and emeralds.
In a house overlooking the green piece of public grassy land,
The roof greening with lichen become green in colour brand.
She knew how to green her home better than McDonald’s!

  1. A pool table on a pool is odd!
    But there it floated on its tod
    It seemed unattended?
    But suddenly, that ended
    As the black was potted by a Cod!

    We own both pool table and pool
    In the summer they’re both really cool
    But when the cold comes
    We’re just down to one
    Should’ve invested in a heated swimming pool!

    Oh boy did Bean feel a fool
    Losing his trunks in the pool
    With nowhere to hide
    He swallowed his pride,
    Surfaced clutching his tiny tool.

  4. I once dreamed I wanted a pool
    The thought, it did cause me to drool
    I searched on the net
    I’ve not found one yet
    Instead, I purchased a stool

  5. Tony took me to Giilingham pool.
    It was freezing, yet he said it was cool.
    He threw me straight in
    And I learned to swim
    With no need for lessons at school.

    Buff Sixpack knew he was cool
    As he posed in the gym and the pool;
    He thought his hot bod
    Would make girls think him god;
    Instead all they saw was a tool.
