Laughing Along With A Limerick

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

BROKE

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

Keith Edgar Channing:

Do I really have to confess
That what I’ve made here is a mess?
I thought I was able
To read the damned label.
Is roast beef meant to effervesce?

Kim Smyth:

My life has become such a mess
I’m just not over the stress
Of moving from one
To my brother’s (undone)
Hope there’s no more distress!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

Our house is a wreck and a mess
Which causes a lot of distress
A hurricane blew
The building – right through
Very badly affected, I confess!

Trent’s World:

Oh, what a mess we’re in
When wrong seems right and good is sin
And Twitter controls
What everyone knows
Let’s toss the whole thing into the bin.

Lance Greenfield:

Clean, shiny mess tins are a must,
So, keep yours free of dirt and rust.
As a mirror to shave
For smooth soldiers brave.
Better, by far, than that naval brush!

Val Fish:

There’s something I need to confess
I’ve got myself in an awful mess
In the family way
And ashamed to say
Who’s the daddy is anyone’s guess.

Ruth Scribbles:

There once was a woman who thought
She could “shop” and never get caught
Her house was a mess
Full of ill-got excess
She never did learn what she aught.

  1. Before you decide to just nix it,
    Remind me which one of you picks it.
    Or please ask the priest
    Keep trying at least
    Even if it ain’t broke, still don’t fix it.

    There once was a man who was broke
    Due to buying a pig in a poke
    He reached in that sack
    And brought out not Jack
    Now, his life’s just a joke!

  3. Broke my foot on the fridge today
    While putting the eggs away
    I tripped over the cat
    And fell down with a splat
    With my toes completely asplay!

  4. Bony Tony was stoney broke,
    But he always was a resourceful bloke.
    He invented a thing
    Tied together with string.
    His lucrative secret’s still under a cloak.

    Terry Dulle, an ordinary bloke
    Came home to find he was broke.
    ‘Where’s it all gone?’
    ‘You spent it, moron,
    On booze, some bets and a smoke.’
    No, I never…

    Wanted to write a limerick but I’m broke
    My clever words turned out a joke
    Nothing’s there at all
    Just an empty skull
    Perhaps I need a bath in which to soak
