Tresses and Messes - Limericks about hair!

Updated on November 2, 2012
Source


A young girl that lived across “the pond”

Loved a man for his locks golden blonde

His visit to her there

Revealed he'd little hair

'twas a clever toupee all along


Rapunzel let down her long tresses

For the prince she thought looked the bestest

But what he wanted next

Was neither love or sex

He wanted to try on her dresses!


The waxing they do in Brazil

Is enough to give some girls the chills

If guys can have jungles

All over their bungles

Then tiny shrubs should be no big deal


He thought her long locks were very nice

He told her once, twice, and even thrice

Strands all over his house

Drain clog looks like a mouse

To hold beauty must come with a price


Her curls were so strangely beautiful

He simply had to give a one pull

She was such a great tart

That it quickened her heart

And she begged to be pulled by handfuls

      A girl with cute curls like a poodle

      Was clever with her limericks and doodle

      Of subjects furry and funny

      Nothing taboo for this hunny

      What a laugh to boost our mood-le.

      Hi Bob! - Ouch ! another visit from the Limerick police! The flow isnt THAT bad! Perhaps I need to head ober there and reaad them to you. See if I can chane your mind ;)

      I did take liberty with the rules on form (three sets of three, two set of three, etc.) I already saw where i can make a few edits. Now that I have really studied up and practiced perhaps I will churn out a set "by the book" and dedicate it to you :)

      Hilarious imagery...but the cadence is out of whack on all of them! You gotta walk the last mile on getting the feet right, Dana, if our tongues stumble in the reading (if you'll excuse the malapropism), it takes half the slick attraction from the Limerick...Bob
