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. Bi-Lingo 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. Cuckoo 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.
