Shortened Limerick (extended version)
There once was a girl, oh-so-slick
Whose motto is now ‘kiss-me-quick’
She thought it was funny
To be rather punny
And end up in this sad limerick
A Limerick is a worthy thing indeed
A Limerick is good to read in times of need
They are short
Give you support
Aid your recovery and wish you ‘God Speed!’
The Limerick was lost in his car
He’d travelled too fast and too far
He had no sat-nav
And he Needed the… toilet
And was amazed that anyone could personify a Limerick as being able to drive a vehicle on the Queen’s highway.
A Limerick is full of good cheer
You can use one to toast in the ‘new’ year
Hold it up high
“Here’s mud in your eye!”
Oops! Should have been ‘wine’ there, I fear.
Oh, great Limerick, mightiest of forms
Thou hast most often inveigled the norms
Brought forth laughter
From ‘ducks’ and hereafter
I revere you as a queen bee loves her swarms.
A Giraffe with a Carafe of fine wine
Said “I’m having a cold drink – it’s fine!
I once had a hot coffee
It was tasty and frothy
But the caffeine-fix kept me up until nine!
