A Vacancy in Heaven

A young Parish Priest Father Mason

Was much loved by his congregation.

He prayed to the Lord

For free room and board,

Now in Heaven he has a reservation.

Source

Hot Head

Former British Prime Minister Blair

Had a toupee instead if real hair.

His wig caught on fire

At a site in Yorkshire,

Leaving Tony Blair's head red and bare.

Prayerful Parrot

There was an old lady named Birch

Who took her pet parrot to church.

It prayed and it sang

Til her mobile phone rang,

And her parrot fell off of it's perch.

Obama the Farmer

President Barack Obama

Once wanted to work as a farmer.

He once drove a tractor

Which wasn't a factor,

In planning to wipe out Osama.

Goth Moth

A young girl who dressed as a goth

Was tormented by a giant moth.

She sought exorcism

But copped some derision

By a stuffy old man of the cloth.

Source

Phony Rabbit

A senator called Tony Abbott

Australia's top job he did grab it.

He's now our Prime Minister

Which I find very sinister.

I prefer to call him Phony Rabbit.

Good God!

The Lord God looked down from above

Hoping to see kindness and love.

What he saw made him sad,

Man was greedy and bad.

He'd messed up, when push came to shove.

The Queen of Jive

The Head of Great Britain, the Queen

At home she can sometimes be seen,

Dancing the jive

With Elton at five,

For Prince Phillip just isn't so keen.


Source

Ten Under Pastor

A generous doctor named Lincoln

Tithed 10 percent of his income

To a pastor named Rolf

With whom he played golf.

You could say he was paying to sink 'em.

Source

Power Tools

Politicians are power hungry ghouls,

Often treating the people like fools.

though when protests are mounted,

And all votes are counted,

It's then we see who are the tools.

Source

Highest Office

A young politician named Pope

To become President was his hope.

When he was selected,

And finally elected,

The leader was both President and Pope.

Funny and laced with more than a little truth! Power Tools, for example, really tells it like it is. Voted Up++

Politics and Religion -- what better fodder for a great limerick writing comedian. If I cannot laugh at my own politics and religion then I have no business having them. And you can quote that.

This was a good distraction and pretty funny. My favorite was the Prayerful Parrot, but then again I liked the Vacancy in Heaven :)

Thanks Eric, I wasn't sure how these would be taken. Thanks for putting my mind to rest. We certainly do need to be able to laugh at ourselves.

Mention China/Tibet

And the pact they could get,

And see if it brings on some Kharma

Some good limericks here for sure with clever satire included. Nice to see someone mostly employing the correct format for limericks. Enjoyed the read and chuckle.


Jodah profile image

Jodah 24 months ago from Queensland Australia Author

Thanks for reading Petenali. Yes, limericks do have a little flexibility in their format but some people stretch that to the limit. I try not to deviate too far but the humour has to be there for it to work.

Humour is a powerful tool. It should be used more often. This was quite enjoyable, John. Funny stuff!


Jodah profile image

Jodah 23 months ago from Queensland Australia Author

Thanks Kim, I love using humour an I feel it is often a more effective though more subtle way of getting a message across. Glad you found these funny.

I suppose bseuace it’s the longest, more established form of the game and has been around longer than ODI and T20 cricket. So Test cricket is prevalent in the consciousness of the wider, general, audience as the form that has more of a classical sensibility about it, what with the insistence on the white uniforms, the rules, the tea break (the only sport to have such a thing) and the long standing competition between certain nations etc. There are customs to it that just don't exist with the other forms.And it hasn’t changed all that much over the years in terms of revisions and innovations to the rules either (well not as much as other forms of the game anyway I don’t think). Well until relatively recently that is.Therefore people think of it as the traditional form.I'm sure there are better reasons out there than that though, I'm just guessing.

Another of a handful of weird comments from guest users today....totally irrelevant to the hub topic.

Jodah 20 months ago from Queensland Australia Author

Another weird comment from guest users today.that doesn't relate..whatever, I do like test cricket and One Day Cricket much better than T20.

I like your limericks. It is an art form that sort of points out that the world we see is maybe just a bit distorted.


Jodah profile image

Jodah 18 months ago from Queensland Australia Author

Thank you Don, glad you like these and I do think there is more truth in them then is immediately evident. The world is indeed a little distorted.
