There once was a Chef name of Larry
Who’s face was a little bit hairy
He looked like a poet
And rhymed don’t ya know it
But a tune he never could carry


My friend had a sister named Trish
Who thought she was really a dish
She would do up her hair
To make all the boys stare
It’s too bad she smelled like dead fish


I once met a plumber named Bill
We called when the pipes caught a chill
He was great don’t you know
Got the water to flow
But his prices made me quite ill


I had a young worker named Frank
His body was built like a tank
He would work all day long
For no more than a song
By days end he would grow quite rank


I once had a girlfriend named Sue
Her whispers would make my heart stew
But the truth should be told
Behind locks spun of gold
Hid a face that caused me to spew


My brother in law name of Dave
Had kids that he treated like slaves
They were sent here and there
Even fetching him beer
A bad way to make them behave

    You’re very good with Limericks. I like that they are not very serious and also kind of fun. Great job!

  • Glad to entertain you!

    i once knew a man from Darljeeing
    he boarded a bus bound for Ealing
    it said on the door ‘do not spit on the floor’
    so he lay down and spat on the ceiling.

    i always remember my dad telling me that one. i love limericks.

  • Great one!

    There is a group for people of wit
    With members we might have to commit
    But I’ll say with a smile
    Your work is worthwhile
    And this is featured, as luck would have it.
