    Greetings -
    Fellow hubber Alekhouse visited my limerick hub yesterday and suggested (in a limerick exchange) we should bring it here, as a challenge.

    Please join in, with original limericks only.
    If unsure how to write one, instructions are here
    http://hubpages.com/hub/How_to_write_a_Limerick
    Here goes:



    OK - the floor's free...

      Bonding through words is so fine,
      Do you all know you are divine?

      The sparks of poets in all of you,
      Through this love we all grew.

      I thought I would see this one through
      Write a Limerick expressly for you,
      PG and A-House
      May think me a Louse
      For knocking their Forum Askew!

    Instead of preparing to sleep
    Or at least to count woolly sheep
    Right here on this thread
    From out of my head
    Comes rhyming with timing so cheap

    Instead of out making a buck
    Here I am trying my luck
    I'll not make a dime
    Not one single time
    But at least my keyboard's not stuck

    It's better than having a moan,
    a whinge or a whine or a groan.
    Religion is woolly
    and politics gruely
    but limericks cut to the bone.

    I welcome this fun writing fest.
    of all the topics, the best.
    No arguing here,
    it's pure and sincere.
    But pardon, I think I digressed.

    Digression is perfectly fine.
    Consider the socks on the line
    It's patently silly
    to think of a lily
    as Solomon's footwear, or mine.

    Totally agree with Wordscribe
    This thread has a very good vibe
    It's a new thing
    It doesn't sting
    and Paraglider's been a good Guide.

      I just found this sweet little thread
      It reminded me that I'm not dead
      If I had my way,
      I'd be rhyming all day
      cos I talk from the back of my head.

    Earnest I think that you'll find
    Tis best to remember this rhyme;
    When you're dead and departed
    You'll find that you've started
    At the end of a very long line.

      I'm "reaching" for this one. Can you help me PG?

      I hope they catch up with us soon
      and give us a try before noon.
      T'would be so inviting
      to savor their writing
      instead of just whistling a tune.

    Oh...so it is a limerick that thou seeks...
    I can do this poetry with a few tweaks...
    So, I thought about each line,
    Making sure they made a limerick rhyme,
    And thought...limerick lines are for geeks! big_smile big_smile big_smile

    Juz' kiddin'...I only play...
    I meant nuth-in' by what I say...
    just came up with this pun,
    and couldn't resist the fun,
    Of firin' off one...in a "Manly" way!coollolneutral

    Please don't find MPM as someone mean...
    I wrestled with this 'til I turned green...
    I'm still new here, my hub clicks could get rocky,
    If I wrote something like a jerk-and appear cocky,
    However, my rhymin' is greater than anyone has ever seen!big_smile

    (Not true-the rhymes from all these great limericks before me are way much better! Humbly, MPM)

    Arizona is hot in the morn
    But at least I'm not writing porn
    My wife being nice
    Wants me to get ice
    'Fore we die and rejoin the unborn

    By writing a limerick or three
    I avoid all the troubles I see
    Oh sure I am broke
    A dirt-crusted bloke
    In denial's where I'd rather be

    On the TV is Family Feud
    The commercial is nasty 'n' rude
    But I've got to dash
    Without any cash
    The kitty needs food and just mewed

      I published a silly hub of poems and two limericks. Here were my contributions regarding pigeons:

      Limerick The First:
      The Bird Lady’s fond of all pigeons.
      So much that she’d start a religion.
      She’d call, “Kitty-coo,”
      From under the poo
      Which weighed much on her final decision.


      Limerick The Second:
      Pigeons loved to bomb old Colonel Thistle.
      The bombs even made sounds like whistles!
      The Colonel, in fits,
      Finally scared them to bits
      By launching a heat seeking missle.

    Twas only this morn I did sight,
    A man whose jeans were too tight,
    He squeaked when he walked,
    And beeped when he talked,
    As he adjusted his balls to the right.

    limericks are very cool

    I will stop...
    and not look like a fool.

    This limerick post is too peachy!
    It's hard, in one verse, to get preachy...
    So farewell "Religion",
    No politic bridgin',
    Just fun, rhyme, and rum-licious Chi-chis

    We'll put out to sea on a junket
    With tea, Devon cream, and a crumpet;
    If we don't run aground,
    Back to harbor we're bound,
    Blowing "Tan, tan-ta-ra" on the trumpet.
