The Big Star

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Young  Anton thought he would go far
He wanted to become a big star
But when crossing the street
He tripped over his feet
And was hit by an oncoming car

(Slightly edited to make it scan)

Thanks to Nicholas for this

A young fellow from Aberdeen
Each day watching the fleet could be seen
Once when they caught a shark
He was heard to remark
Goodness me what a massive sardine

And another one from Martin

The Model

Monday, November 1st, 2010

The model was striking a pose
In long gown and high stilettos
But when she stepped back
Her heel caught in a crack
And she fell over right on her nose

Hungry Tiger

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

A tiger by taste anthropophagous
Felt a yearning within his oesophagus
He spied a fat Brahmin
And though ‘what’s the harm in’
A peripatetic sarcophagus

Thanks to Martin for this (It was his father’s favourite)


Friday, October 1st, 2010

In the path of a skateboard….a rock
Lay during a race ‘gainst the clock.
The “surfer” was happy.
He grinned at his pappy.
His “bod” slid a full half-a-block.

Thanks to Hoot Gibson for this

Millicent’s Silly Scent

Was highly displeasing to Millicent
Her displeasure she nursed
as she ranted and cursed
That silly scent Willy sent Millicent

Beau’s Clothes

Two eager and dashing young beau’s
Were held up and robbed of their clothes
In summer it’s warm –
They’ll come to no harm
But what will they do if it snows?

Time Travel

Though his friends said he ought to desist
But he said I’d rather
And killed his grandfather
Then found that he didn’t exist

Small Medium

A young psychic midget named Marge
Went to jail on a most heinous charge
But despite lock and key
The next day she broke free
And the headlines said “Small Medium at Large”

Robotic Pants

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

A group of young students from France
Invented some robotic pants.
When given the chance,
they’d go out and dance.
The students, of course, not the pants.

Trolls on Forums

Arrow in King Harold’s Eye

Monday, July 19th, 2010

Said King Harold at Hastings on day
I’ve thought of a game we can play,
I’ll call it ‘I spy
With my little eye’
And it’s something beginning with ‘A’.

Thanks to Peter Sharpington for this 🙂

Two ships, hauling paint red and blue,
Crashed at sea, in a fog thick as stew,
This terrible crash
Caused a monstrous splash,
Which quickly MAROONED the whole crew.

Thanks Hank for this one.

A Girl From Juneau

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

There once was a girl from Juneau
though I’m quite sure that you-know

why wolves do bark at the moon-o.

Thanks Holly

Got caught in a trap meant for bears

And for her hairs she has no more cares

Broken Knee

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

I was taking a walk on the street,
Then I sat on a crooked bench seat,
I fell on my knee
and broke it (poor me!)
So now I can’t stand on my feet

Thank you Rubykad for this

There once was a girl in Natches,
Whose outfit was made out of patches.
When comments arose
on the state of her clothes,
She replied “When I itches, I scratches!”

Thanks to Joshua Williams for this one.


Monday, April 5th, 2010

There once was an epicure from Crewe
Who found a rather large mouse in his stew
Cried the Waiter “Don’t shout!
Or wave it about!
Or the rest will be wanting one too!”

A variation on a limerick that’s already on the blog.

This Limerick Called Life

Friday, March 19th, 2010

I know this may sound absurd
But I have this obsession with words.
I’ve taken up blogging;
It’s more fun than jogging.
So through limericks I like to be heard.

In a small Pennsylvania town,
I grew up just hangin’ around.
After high school graduation,
The world was my fascination.
Amman, Jordan is now where I’m found.

My interests are my kids and cooking
Along with reading and lots of facebooking
I hope that my themes
will reign supreme
and keep you coming back and looking.

The Boy From Cancun

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

There once was a boy from Cancun
Who swallowed a helium balloon
He exclaimed in dismay
As he floated away
I’ll see you, on the dark side of the moon

Tyana And The Banana

and that is the tale of Tyana
