A Limerick A Day Keeps The Laughter In Play

Just right tales....

Peas porridge hot, or peas porridge cold,

No peas porridge should be 10 days old.

Goldilocks and the Family of Three Bears

Found those hot meals were sure cause to beware.

Or else their tale would never be told.

Sometimes lots of tares....

One person in the garden, staring at the seed.

Four people in the garden, staring at each weed.

The vegetables are growing;

Mostly thanks to all that sowing.

Still there's just no telling how many they will feed.

My it was beautiful, but really, really cold!


There once was a bull moose....

There once was a bull moose

Fancy free, and foot loose

He thought he could outrace it,

(that train) but we must face it.

He's impaled as the train's caboose.

There Once Was A Willy

There once was a Willy

quite known to be silly.

He'd play on his fiddle,

sing "Hey, Diddle Diddle"

done well for a young hillbilly.

Running mates....

"Four score and seven...."

Old Abe is in Heaven,

Among vice presidents,

One, Johnson, took residence.

Can you name another seven?*

*Actually nine became president, but only four were later elected to a full term.

Can you even name President Lincoln's first vice president?**

Fee, fay, foe....

Sorry she was. I know.

Out sitting in the snow.

It wouldn't be so sad,

But she bet all she had.

Her team lost to their foe.

I pleasure in keeping you smiling, and that I have repeated opportunities to do so for a fellow Mainiac. Thanks for everything.
