When Poetry Matters Limerick

Thursday, July 29th, 2021

If poems are written to flatter,
or just form a verbiage-strewn splatter,
they’re no better than
a filling-less flan
or fillets of cod without batter.

According to Dominic Cummings Limerick

Wednesday, July 21st, 2021

My vision is awfully bold,”
said Boris, “though some think it cold.
To keep the state running
and industry gunning,
forget about anyone old.”

Dick and Jane: Book 1 Limerick

Wednesday, July 21st, 2021

We already knew ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’,
and probably ‘1’, ‘2’ and ‘3’.
But then we learned ‘dog’,
which was followed by ‘frog’,
and some pronouns like ‘I’, ‘you’ and ‘we’.

Katie Hopkins Deportation Limerick

Wednesday, July 21st, 2021

Oh, Katie, you make us all wonder,
in view of your latest great blunder;
Can’t you do as you’re told?
Breaking rules isn’t bold!
It gets you kicked out from Down-Under.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner as a Limerick

Saturday, July 17th, 2021

The crew deemed their shipmate a turd
o’er an albatross, shot, so they heard
with the old sailor’s bow,
causing ill-fortune, so
they collectively gave him the bird.

The Cat in the Hat (Abridged and Uncensored)

Saturday, July 17th, 2021

A cat in a hat made a mess,
putting two kids at home under stress.
Then the cat pulled some strings
and enlisting two Things
cleaned the house in a minute or less.

Daffodils as a Limerick

Monday, July 12th, 2021

I wandered alone like a cloud,
seeing daffodils all in a crowd.
And now if Life glowers,
with thoughts of those flowers,
my joy in the world’s re-avowed.

England Through to Final Limerick

Friday, July 9th, 2021

It’s taken us fifty-five years
of prayers and crossed-fingers and tears
to get within sight
of a cup-winning night,
so till then let us break out the beers.

Chris Whitty Limerick

Wednesday, July 7th, 2021

Of the thugs who assaulted Chris Whitty
in St. James’s Park, in the City,
one’s just lost his job
on account he’s a yob,
oh dear, what a shame, such a pity.
