If you go out this Halloween night,
you’re certain to suffer a fright,

the werewolves are chomping
and Dracula’s out for a bite.


Ryanair Limerick

September 17th, 2017

When Ryanair offers you deals,

that the tariffs you pay
don’t suffice to afford enough wheels.


Kim Jong-Un Limerick #2

September 13th, 2017

from nuking the s#@$ out of Guam.”


X Factor Limerick

of your voice in the shower,
The truth is you probably stink.


Trump Mad(?) Limerick

plan to end the mad emperor’s reign.


Dr Watson Limerick

September 2nd, 2017

Poor Watson had just drawn a blank
on what poison Sir Marmaduke drank.

Good God, man! You’re thick as a plank!”


Hercule Poirot Limerick

August 31st, 2017

resonating like bells,
tell him when, what and why, how and who.


Inspector Morse Limerick

August 29th, 2017

Once he’s finished his bottle of wine.


Miss Marple Limerick

August 27th, 2017

Miss Marple, the sprightly old hound,

Sherlock Holmes Limerick

August 23rd, 2017

“It’s most element’ry,” cried Holmes,

And then dropped the penny,
he’d had one pipe too many,
when he added: “‘Coz inside live gnomes.”


Kim Jong Un Limerick

August 7th, 2017

Kim Jong Un is a tyrant with flair,
who has left the U.S. in despair;
but the world knows him best
for his ‘XXL’ chest
and the curious state of his hair.


Dr Who Limerick

July 18th, 2017

The new Time Lord’s quite a surprise;
she’ll emerge once the Scottish one dies.
But I warn you, refrain,

Michael Bond Limerick

June 29th, 2017

As creator of Paddington Bear,
Michael Bond was a writer with flair.
And he’s now in that place
of eternal good grace
where there’s marmalade sarnies to spare.


John Noakes Limerick

May 29th, 2017

from the Blue Peter host
was: “Here’s one I made earlier today.”


Russian Collusion (?) Limerick

May 28th, 2017

Trump’s party, it seems, got ahead
by being with Russia in bed;
and for those with an eye,
this may explain why
the Republican colour is red.


Roger Moore Limerick

May 24th, 2017

Of Roger Moore we were all fond;
the most famous spy’s mantle he donned.
And what can be sweeter
than telling St. Peter
“The name, my dear fellow, is Bond.”

Donald The Puppet Limerick

May 16th, 2017

since diplomacy’s tests he can’t pass.
For if he’s not tamed,
I foresee he’ll be named
a hero of Russia, first class.


100+ Days Limerick

May 13th, 2017

The FBI chief has been fired,
in wrong-doing rumour Trump’s mired;
and his staff have made cash
to add to their stash
when with Russia they schemed and conspired.


John Bickley Limerick

May 9th, 2017

From his words and his self-righteous pose
John Bickley’s a man I suppose
who in spite of his suit,
in his youth once picked fruit,
or perhaps all he’s picked is his nose.


A Limerist’s Limerick

May 1st, 2017

A Limerist isn’t a toff,
yet my hat to such poets I doff;
for to write stuff so lewd
or by being plain rude
is an art, so you all can f#$k off.


Rent’s Due Limerick

April 22nd, 2017

Nukes For All Limerick

Kim Jong Un Nuclear Limerick

April 18th, 2017

Said Kim Jong Un: “I have a plan
to become the world’s number one man.
And though ‘one’ might mean ‘only’,

Failed Bills Limerick

March 27th, 2017

Poor Donald said from the beginning:
“You’ll soon all get fed up with winning.”

Backwards Bertha

There once was a girl named Bertha
Who liked doing things vice versa.
She ate breakfast at night
And all was alright
But the pancakes led to inertia.

Leicester – Liverpool Match

March 2nd, 2017

The question last night’s football begs
Is had Liverpool drunk dry some kegs?
For it seemed to be clear
That they’d been at the beer,
Or else Leicester have just found their legs.


Travel Ban Limerick

February 11th, 2017

In the saga of Donald J. Trump,
his travel ban hit a big bump.
So to hide his mistakes,
he call news outlets fakes
and said those who opposed him he’d thump.


Twit Limerick

February 8th, 2017

Trump wants to appear a hard hitter
by resorting to insults on Twitter.
But each time he reacts
with his typos and ‘facts’
