Acrostic Limericks 3

Some time ago, I was looking at acrostic poems of which many examples exist. However, try as I may, I found very few examples of acrostic Limericks.

That is something we need to address, isn’t it?

And so I have started to look out for prompts that contain a multiple of five letters (my preferred multiple is one).

This week, I found a few five-letter prompts, all at Tales from the mind of Kristian and thought I’d give them a go.

Let me know what you think.


Unless I am badly mistaken
Some drinks should be stirred, never shaken
Unexpectedly, though
Another says ‘no’
Let me tell you, he knows, he’s Jamaican.


Richard is such a nice bloke
I don’t think he knows a bad joke
Very fine fellow
Ever so mellow
Regardless, he is a bit woke.


Vacations are out for this summer
I personally think that’s a bummer
Staying right here
Till the end of the year
Assures that I’ll only get glummer

Anyone care to join me?

  1. Like Derrick, I think I’ll just sit back and enjoy yours. Well, maybe not.
    Some like to take a big chance
    All in for a big bust or a dance
    From where I sit
    They can have it
    You need a lung for romance
