Laughing Along With A Limerick

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


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

Keith Edgar Channing:

Sometimes I am just not aware
When I reach for the good book and swear
Every word is a fact,
And the few I retract
Relate to our clandestine affair.

Kim Smyth:

I swear although the rain has just started
Summer and I don’t want to be parted
So early in the year
For fall to be near
Can it be that the season has started?

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

I swear fealty to the new king
Said the Knight as he started to swing
His magical sword
But it caught on a board
Now his arm’s in a mythical sling!


To me, it’s neither here, nor there
Whether people feel the need to swear.
They can call me poltroon
Or odious buffoon
And I’ll barely turn the odd hair.

When young, with nary a care
I had little need to swear.
But as I developed some pluck
I let go the odd darn
As rhyming was truly overrated.

Ruth Scribbles:

I swear, I swear, I swear, I swear
How dare you even try to go there
You gave me your word
But you are a turd
Why did you tell that I fell off the chair?

  1. I’m in a really big bind
    I want to search and find
    The silver and gold
    At rainbows end, told
    But I can’t cos I’m blind!

  2. Before this new verselet I write,
    Looking fearful that I may take flight.
    I must needs go in blind
    Never sure that I’ll find
    Dame Muse with her sweet guiding light.

    There was a man named Matt
    Who seemed as blind as a bat
    His eyes were good
    It’s understood
    It was how he wore his hat
    There was a girl named Dee
    Who totally blind-sided me
    In she flew
    Out of the blue
    And hit before I could see

    There once was a girl oh so blind
    She sought love, yet couldn’t find
    In clubs nor in pubs
    But she kept concert stubs
    The memories at least were so kind.

    ‘Buying fruit,’ young Thomas opined,
    ‘Is a risky business if you’re partially blind;
    The staff all think I’m utterly hopeless
    And one old woman told me to grope less,
    Cos I can’t tell ripe melons from a pert behind.’

  6. In Hollywood, greed is good, love is blind
    On streets of gold, so I’m told, all are kind
    As time goes by, you will see it’s a lie
    Or you’ll be fooled …. if you’re that way inclined
