A to Z Poetry Challenge Day 12-A Load of Limericks

I read my A to Z  Challenge on Rena Traxel‘s blog today. Then I got in the car for 4 hours! Eeeekkkk! That combination counts for a load of limericks. Well, not really that many…but I loved how “load of limericks” rolled off my tongue 🙂

River Shiver
There once was a fish in the river
Who dined on fresh earthworms and liver.
Then he took a good look,
And he noticed the hook
Which made his scales quiver and shiver!
TuTu Guru
There once was a cow in a muumuu 
Who said, “I would rather a tutu.”
And as proof, she arose
And spun ’round on her toes.
A real ballet-mooving, dance guru!
Upside Down
There once was a bird who said, “Soaring
Is really becoming quite boring.”
So she flipped upside down
And the sky became ground.
And now she is soaring, adoring.
Again, I want to thank Rena for her challenges. Today I especially want to thank her guest host Catherine Johnson who told us all about limericks. Catherine’s fun-loving personality is evident at her blog which is a delight to follow and read! Check it out HERE
Just for fun…here are some limericks I wrote earlier this year.
There once was a bright, pink flamingo
Who married a wild, raunchy dingo.
Conversation was blurred
Cause he couldn’t speak bird
And she didn’t speak dingo lingo.
Along came a little flam-dingo
And they named the cute kiddo Ringo.
When he spoke his first word
It was dog mixed with bird.
It turns out that he was bi-lingo.
The Trade
There was an ole pirate named Sid
Who met a sailing arachnid.
He traded his peg
For one spider leg,
And tangoed his way through Madrid.
There once was a clock-making guru
Who boarded the Number Nine Choo Choo.
He mummered, “Oh dears!”
Cause the train’s engineer’s
Hands twirled as he hollered out,  “Cuckoo!”
Limerick Insomnia
At night I have limerick insomnia
In spite of my flannel pajamas.
My head is immersed
With the next rhyming verse.
Oh my! All this poetic drama.

  1. Is “limerick insomnia” what it’s called?? I think I must suffer from that too! So loved your clever word choices–“bi-lingo!!!” Loved that!


  2. You are the limerick queen! Bi-Lingo is hilarious and I can see you turning that into a pb somehow!!! Thanks for sharing Penny 🙂
