Limericks of Sweet Garn

Updated on November 10, 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/

A Couple Too Stern

There once was a couple so stern

that the man, known just as "Mean Vern,".

had their son confined to the barn,

which he torched (that son named "Sweet Garn,)

so his folks could both rest in an urn.




Sweet Garn

There once was a man named Sweet Garn

Who could tell us each one a yarn.

From his youth he was strong,

Though constantly called wrong,

'til the day that he burned down the barn.

Rest at last!

Snore On

I'd hasten to say,

that it's finally my day,

when listening pays for its keep.


My wife likes to snore.

I found it a bore.

'til she started to talk in her sleep.


The things she will say

now brighten my day.

For then came her turn for her keep.


That fellow named "Jack"

who keeps coming back,

by mail I received his bill.


For the truth they vowed never to spill.

Her money now sits in his till.

But she? Never his to keep.


I'd love her no more

except for her snore

and the words that spill out in her sleep,


Some promises she still can't keep.

Leak out in her sleep not deep.

Please, God, let me sleep and not snore.



Not so, Sweet Garn....

      teaches12345 - I hope I can have a persistent sense of humor until the end. It greases the skids of life.

      Gypsy Rose Lee - That looks a little like me....for as long as I keep this latest of only two beards in my lifetime. The last one was going back to Laos to get married, many happy years ago.

      annart - The construction could be tighter, and the humor a little lighter, but I'm glad he didn't fight her, her snoring's an all-nighter.

      Answer to questions: no I was not confined to a barn, and I didn't burn one down. Just having some fun with rhyming.
