Said the Kingpin to Miss Golightly

“you look dirty and rather unsightly

And It’s rather a strain

Seeing you again and again,

Why don’t you attempt bathing nightly?”

 

This Limerick was written in response to the following word prompts:

Laugh Along with a Limerick – An Artful Sketch

Esther Chilton on her blog has set a challenge to write a Limerick containing the word Crush. Click on the link below to see her post and take part in the challenge.

Here is my attempt:

On my art teacher, I had a slight Crush

He asked to see what I’d drawn in a rush.  

So, I showed him my sketches

But men are such wretches!

What he said just made me quite blush!

I also wanted to include the Word of the Day: Sketches

Limerick Challenge – Life Reflections.

I was reflecting on life in general and I realised that when you think about it, it’s all totally absurd! You have to laugh at life and learn not to take it so seriously and where better than to take part in a limerick writing challenge.

So here is a challenge hosted by Esther Chilton on her blog, click on the link below to take part.

The Challenge was to write a limerick containing the word ‘Back’. So here is my attempt:

You can reflect on your life and your lack,
but nothing can come from this tack,
There’s one thing that’s so true
each day brings something new
and in life, you can never go back.

Nature’s heart – A very short poem.

Today I discovered a new challenge, the CCC challenge and in response to this fantastic picture, I have written a short poem.

To escape from life’s hustle and bustle,

I go where the leaves like to rustle,

Those back alleyways, where nature naturally stays.

An oasis that boosts my heart muscle.

This also reminds me of a poem I wrote many years ago:

I have also included the following word prompt:

A Limerick – A Gift

and here is my attempt:

The other day I received a gift,

I thought would give me a much needed lift

but when opened, I saw

it was actually for next door

and Boy!, was I really miffed!

A Limerick – Lying Camera’s

This Limerick was written for Sadje’s What do you See Challenge.
Click on the link below:

What do you see # 36 – 29 June 2020

 

The camera, they say never lies

But so often it seems to disguise

the model’s face and its flaws

a bold nose or weak jaws

so the truth never reaches the eyes.

So here is my attempt:

 

A lesson in weight-loss I thought I’d teach,

but then I heard an almighty screech,

I ran into the kitchen

and saw her cravings were itching,

I’d put the chocolate up way out of reach.

Esther Chilton on her blog has posed the challenge to write a Limerick based on the prompt: MOON

Here is the link if you want to have a go too:

https://esthernewtonblog.wordpress.com/2020/05/25/laughing-along-with-a-limerick-10/comment-page-1/#comment-23289

 

Here is my attempt:

“As I lay in the grass, all content
The night winds appearing God-sent
I gaze up at the moon
and start to assume
that some bugger has stolen my tent.”

 

And if you like this one you may like this poem I wrote a while ago called Moongazing:

Limerick Woes – A Playful Limerick and a Terrible Poem

I thought I would enter Chelsea Owens Terrible Poetry Contest, which this week is to write a Limerick:

Here is the link to her post:

The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest 3/14 – 3/20/2020

I thought I’d try a Limerick,

It sounded fun, a lark, a kick,

but please take my advice

and always think twice

because now I’m feeling quite sick. 

 

This poem was written for the Word of the Day Word prompts: Limerick, Advice and Kick
