Cowboys and Girls - Limericks

Updated on November 15, 2012
Source
Source


There was a young cowboy out west

Herding cattle he gave it his best

Cowgirls made him nervous

How they wore their shirts-es

Showing of giant mounds of their breasts



A girl from the east one day reckoned

The life of the west it did beckon

She packed up her sunshine

With hopes of a good time

with cowboys. Now she's off to rope one!



In his bull riding skills he had pride

They were tested and true they were tried

But eight seconds in bed

With the one he had wed

It's no wonder the poor woman cried

      Mary - I wonder what the cowboys would think of my poetry! I found a few more that I should add to this. I couldn't find them when I published this. Or I could do anothe one. Who knew cowboys would make for such fun?!

      Yep, this one is pretty amusing. I have personally known lots of cowboys and they are a pretty egotistical bunch. They love the ladies, too!

      ALUR - So happy I could give you something to distract from the nerve-racking job hunt! My hubs vary from informational to dramatic to just plain silly. Sometimes you just need something light and funny.... Good luck with the job hunt!

      rcrumple - LOL! Lasso grabbing? Riding? oh dear. there are so many things that could be said here that could go oh so wrong. And that is the fun of a Limerick! .... so happy you enjoyed these. you always put a smile on my face. glad to return the favor :)

      Speed Kills ... relationships! lol I don't know to grab a lasso or ride off into the sunset. Somehow, saying that I'm riding my horse has a strange connotation here. lol Fun poem! Enjoyed!

      Bill -oh dear! Please don't let me be the one responsible for putting the great billybuc in an early grave. The hubbers will have my head! I desperately wanted to accompany that one with a sexy bosomy photo, but nothing met my standards. Maybe it's good for you I didn't !.... so happy to add some fun to your day. That's what I do this for :)

      I couldn't get past the line, 'showing off giant mounds of their breasts.' I was eating some banana bread when I read that line and I almost choked.

      Great fun Dana!
