Limericks!

I was once involved in a "Limerick" discussion on an other forum and some of discussions were quite entertaining not to mention some of the limericks.

There were two or three people who were so quick at writing them at times they were virtually holding conversations in Limericks.

So any thoughts you have on Limericks, or how have you used Limericks?

Or just share your Limericks (No rude ones please!)

I'll make a start.

There are people on Worship the Rock

Who talk about God quite a lot

The give him such praise

The world they amaze

And silence the people who mock.

I came here to post on the thread,

That didn't go over my head,

It never was heated,

But now it's deleted,

Was it something I said?

There once was a soloist true
who screamed, roared and sang in the loo
with words of great might
he was quite a delight
but turned the whole place shades of blue.

T'was Christmas day in the morn,
And some one played the French horn
It made such a noise
It frightened the boys
And the girls screamed and ran out on the lawn.

Just saw this thread again, and couldn't resist...

The pianist made strong allegation:

"That guitarist who plays the Ovation!

Well, the instrument's nice,

And his strumming precise,

But I can't stand his dire intonation!"

Sorry but I found this old discussion was still here and I couldn't resist having another go.

No one's contributed for quite a long while,

you would think the discussion was vile,

in fact they're just bored,

and find no reward,

so put the whole thing on to file.

No need to be sorry, as so glad you found,

The limerick discussion is still around.

So come on all you newbies,

Post your replies please,

And let's get this show off the ground.

Great to see you David, hope you are well.

A songwriter, filled with delusion

Pens lyrics in grandest effusion

From an igloo in Nome

Which he calls his home

Reality's but an Aleutian.

Ha, love it :)

In noticing detail, I do not lack,

I'm on a par with Columbo and Kojak,

But I can't solve the case,

Of 'Why the double space'?

If you have information, post back!

Way orsum!

But why the double space?  I started to say, "I don't know"; but going back to school days, we double-spaced so that the teacher could write with the red pen in between the lines, correcting.  So perhaps when we write poetry as adults, we still feel the teacher looking over our shoulder.

This discussion was lost on the rock

but new contributors have found this old stock

They have breathed in new life

to this old book of strife

And somehow they've wound back the clock.
