Limerick Lines

Updated on August 6, 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:


Sales King

For ramping up sales he was King.

It didn't matter what kind of a thing.

Then came a college co-ed.

His attentions he bestowed.

Soon babysitting followed the ring.


`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.....`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`

Stirred and Boiling

Forsooth his heart did awaken,

so suddenly it was achin'.

When she fluttered by,

His BP shot up so high,

To the hospital he had to be taken.


`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.` . . . . . `.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`

`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.` . . . . . `.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`


The Hatted Trickster

For sake of a plum or a pear,

he'd "willingly" shave off his hair.

If the truth should be told,

his sacrifice was not bold,

He had nary a hair or two there.


`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.` ..... `.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`


Deceptive Appearance

She looked like the type for the street.

Yet beneath it all she was sweet.

While surely a good looker,

she was not someone's hooker,

but a police decoy.....Tweet! Tweet!


`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.` ..... `.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`.`

      So far, thanks to you folks, 2 Funny, 2 Smile, and 1 Awesome.... though the Score Card shows just the 1 Funny. Some of my other "Limerick Lovers" may chime in tomorrow. Thanks again.

      Victoria Lynn - You were not alone. It had several votes for "favorite" although I felt best about the last one.

      Gypsy Rose Lee - Faces love smiles and authors love comments like this one.

      aviannovice - I guess that means I have staved off dementia, so far. Hooray! I'll take your advice and try.
