Limericks: A First Try

Limericks: A First Try


This is my first try at creating some fun limericks. Please tell me what you think.


Fashion Show


There once was a girl named Gabby-

Who realized her wardrobe was quite shabby-

She bought a new look-

That was flashed in a book-

Now she can’t stop men from being grabby.


Underdog


There once was a skinny named Tim-

Who thought he could get bigger at a gym-

He lifted weights like a champ-

But got no larger than an ant-

Still a gold medal he would win.


Fits To A Tee


There once was a man named Randolph-

Who found out he was good at pro golf-

With a swing of the club-

He knew he was in love-

Until the day he is nineteen pars off.


This Whacky Author


There once was a writer named Carrie-

Who wanted to lick a limerick like a strawberry-

But without a four leaf clover-

She knew her appetite was over-

Once this poem got too scary.


He Shall Rise


There once was a boy named Lance-

Who wasn’t able to walk or dance-

Until the day he met Pam-

Now he can stand-

Hence a miracle; a second chance.


Transplant


There once was a goof named Bart-

Who really thought he was good at art-

But when he splashed the paint-

He made an old nurse faint-

At least he’ll get a new heart.


In Good Company


There once was a guy named Zar-

Who couldn’t stay out of the bar-

Pretty women would wink-

And he’d buy them a drink-

Hoping it would go too far.


Make Believe


There once was a man named Drake-

Who was crafty with his neighbor’s new rake-

He broke it in two-

But just between me and you-

The leaves in the yard were all fake.


Clog


There once was a plumber named Buck-

Who crawled in a pipe and got stuck-

Even though people passed him by-

They could not hear him cry-

So he remained sh*t out of luck.

      Exploring around Hubville you've met some great limerickers such as jodah and Mhatter99. Keep on keeping on, it's one fun that won't grow on you.

      could put up a fight,

      her words were both bow and arrow,

      she'd wrack her brain 'til it turned into pain,

      and yet kept her waistline quite narrow.
