Limerick - All Is Lost

Updated on April 29, 2014

Demas finds limericks a challenge and has crafted a few that even have chuckles. Of the bunch you can choose from he offers these/

Lost: life's treasure.


His wife's beauty was fantastic,

Her cooking left no need to roam.

She sang songs just so romantic,

Yet with sad tears he did panic

He couldn't recall the way home.

The tipped over jug....


My grandfather used to tell the story of a drunken man in the gutter who couldn't get up.

Beside him, but out of reach, was his whiskey jug with the whiskey running out.

As the whiskey ran out it made a gurgling sound, "glug, glug, glug....glug" to which its drunken owner replied, "Good? Good? I know you're good, but I can't get at ya!"

Sometimes we panic and our mind draws a blank, reason and memory have departed. Only our panic and our confusion are left.

Such is the sad tale of the husband in this limerick.

Being disoriented can happen to anyone. Just don't panic when it happens to you.

Be it ever so humble, there's no place, if you can't find it.
Be it ever so humble, there's no place, if you can't find it. | Source

Dealing with a mental block:

When your memory fails at a critical moment, do you sometimes panic?

      Clever limerick. I must say that is the one thing above all that scares me - having my memory fail at a most critical moment like away from home.

      MizBejabbers - Thanks for the uplift, I will try to be more orthodox, and, if possible, more humorous.

      It's a really cute poem, but it isn't a limerick. In a limerick lines 1,2 and 5 rhyme and are longer. Lines 3 and 4 rhyme with each other and are usually short. Just trying to be helpful. I loved it anyway. (P.S. I can't write poetry; limericks are the only kind I can write.)

      P. wrote a really cute poem (pronounced with one syllable in this case)

      The guy couldn’t come home

      Had a good wife

      And a good life

      He was destined to roam.

      Got it? with love,

      Miz B.

      Composing a limerick can be lots of fun. I recommend joining in and giving the rest of us a chuckle.

      This limerick was very entertaining to read. I wasn't able to guess how it would end. : )

      Another good limerick Perspycacious and some words of wisdom. I quote "If there is panic let it be organized" :)

      "I've been known to, but please don't tell anyone." Your limerick is a very clever parable. I enjoyed this. :-)
