Can you Write a Limerick?

Thank you to everyone who wrote a limerick for this St. Patrick's giveaway!

I am in the process of reviewing all the wonderful limericks that you have written and I will announce the winner
this afternoon here on this blog.

I will notify the winner on his/her blog and ask that he/she send me his/her
snail mail address so I can send out the prizes (see below).

Good ol' American thumb wrestling meets the East with this unique kit. The kit contains two rubber sumo wrestlers that cover your thumbs, and a book packed with fun facts and new variations on this classic past-time.

Explore and recreate the magic of Stonehenge with 16 rock slabs, a beautifully landscaped mat, and a 32-page guide explaining the mysterious building of this ancient wonder.

Good grief, I can barely write a letter!

Mary says to stop and write
She wants us all to really fight
For wrestlers that are fat
And stones built on a mat
Patty's Day gifts to bring delight!

There once was a kitty named Ringo.
Who spoke in his own private lingo.
He howled in the night
And gave his owner a fright
But was really just trying to sing-o

I am sitting with my Ringo cat so I wrote about him.

I will try with all my might
To write a verse that's really bright.
Maybe I will win the prize -
Two fat men who are thumb size
Then I'll watch them as they fight.

(Now I'll try to work on a better one.)

I might give it a go...
if this balmy rain will go
for I know that pot of gold...
I'll get my hands to hold
is at the end of that rainbow

Mary,I'm waiting for the sun today!
Dropped by to say
What happened to Maxine?
she doesn't seem to be on the scene.
Is she on a Holiday?

It has been a long time since I tried this so don't laugh too hard!

I knew a lady named Mary.

She was light, kind and sweet like a fairy!

She was a teach.

Quite a sweet peach.

And she wrote like a dream not a scream!

Okay Mary...I've never done this LOL Here is my very feeble attempt LOL

There is Erin or is it Aaron with a schwerin

Has a Bra which should be Bragh pick your garin

Said old Erin about this Aaron

It's not Aaron it is Erin

It is Bragh and not the Bra for his kerin

I came to the Work of the Poet

stars will shine in my eyes
and my name you will finally know it

There once was a lady named Mary
Who set up a challenge quite hairy
Write limericks she said
So we all did with dread
Will they meet her high standards we query?

Of winter's demise I will gladly sing,
Robins returning on the wing,
Crocuses peeking through the snow
Fiddlehead picking before they grow, Enjoying the harbingers of spring.

There once was a man from Nantucket...

Oh, wait, I forgot, she might chuck it

If it isn't PC, which I'm unlike to be, so

Perhaps I'll just have to say f**k it!

Happy Ruby Tuesday Mary, and please pardon my taking liberties! ;)

All of mine are rated X

St. Paddy puts on a good show

Erin Go Brach this I know

Should be no suspense

That in just two days hence

The nineteenth we remember St. Joe

Mimi said...

Write a Limerick, you say,
Cos it's St Patrick's Day,
But I'll just frown
Cos I've shamrock to drown,
And Guinness to drink till I sway!

Not great, Mary, but I had to write something. I'll be back if I can think of more.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Hope you've a good one.

Mimi said...

There once was a drunkard named Pat
Who obsessed over his rather large hat
"I wear it each year
It brings festival cheer
And I've another one just for my cat"!

Don't know if this is quirky or just weird!!

Mimi said...

A young lad called Patrick from Wales
Came to Ireland, the land of the Gaels,
He lived with the pigs
Their sty was his digs
In March we recount all his tales.

Well, this was certainly the highlight and laugh of the day! You guys are all terrific! I love it, but wouldn't dare try to compete with this kind of limerick genius!!!
What fun!
