Moose On The Loose

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Near Buttonville Airport, a moose
dodged traffic and cameras while loose.
Police reined him in
while out for a spin
then lured him with syrup and juice.

It followed a meadow northbound
with little distraction or sound
but as they looked back
on footage. no lack (of)
a swath of destruction they found.

It skittered through runways and fields
used back yards and fences as shields.
Although it was cute
crashed on, resolute
observers cheered loudly to yield.

Precautions stacked up to the hilt,
and so they progressed full of guilt.
They readied the dart.
Before they could start
it took off back home at full tilt.

Lewis Hamilton Limerick

Said Lewis: “My motor went vrooom,
as it swept round the track like a broom,
and the speed of my pace
brought a smile to my face,
but to rivals brought nothing but gloom.”

Dickens’ David

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Young David endured quite a lot
Step-father and sister he fought
to protect his Mum
and Peggotty some
those books* saved his mind from dry rot.

His trousers were tattered and torn,
for much better things he was born.
As life took a turn,
his bridges he burned,
and thrived though his aunt was forlorn.

Miss Trotwood had wanted a girl
to pamper and placate and curl
all boys were a mess
would not wear a dress
best educate them wind and whirl!

*Chpt.4,David Copperfield: “My father had left a small collection of books in a little room upstairs, to which I had access (for it adjoined my own) and which nobody else in our house ever troubled.”

North Korean Diplomacy Limerick

Said Trump: “Kim Jong Un, here’s the rub;
you’re a backwater, we are a hub.
So show me respect,
or Pyongyang will be wrecked
because I have a nuclear sub.”

Halloween Limerick

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

If you go out this Halloween night,
you’re certain to suffer a fright,
for ogres are romping,
the werewolves are chomping
and Dracula’s out for a bite.
