Limerick - Pool Clutter

Updated on June 2, 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/

Poolside to poolside joy!

Is there room anymore?  The sign says "Capacity 117".

Great place for a game of catch!


For any of the words I might stutter

On the subject of simple pool clutter,

The fact still remains

That if I had brains’

I’d get there before the noise utters.


The kids love to swim,

It’s not just a whim.

Their balls they bring with them to play.

with splashes, and shouting so gay.

No wonder they’re trim.


As for me “the old duffer“,

It seems sure I must suffer,

If swimming is part of my day.

“Capacity 1, 1, 7” Say!

With so many bodies, I'd best be tougher.


Body to body, cheek to jowl;

“I’ve got you; now, so just you howl!”

At least I got myself wet,

Though I haven’t swum yet.

Climb out and throw in the towel.

      I'm headed to the ocean for a quick dip, too. It's what I'm accustomed to. Last check, the pool was crowded again.

      Voted up and funny. I remember going to a hotel in the states where it was so hot everyone was in the pool. There was not room so I had this inflatable wheel ring and I put it over me and just sort of hung there in the pool. lol

      Thanks - I'm headed for the Atlantic ocean! No one swims there at odd hours! And even when they do, there's a few thousand miles of room if I want to get away! Voted up and funny.

      The pool sign at the resort says "Capacity 117". By mid-afternoon even on a hot July weekday there are some limits that make it seem the sign should read "Maximum Capacity 117. Less is better!" The trick is to get the swim in early or late, when swimming is actually possible without feeling as if you are sharing a Hot Tub experience. Thanks for your comments. Enjoy your summer swims.
