Acrostic Limericks 7

Some time ago, I was looking at acrostic poems  — I was interested in rhyming verse where the first letter of each line spells out a word when read from top to bottom. Many examples of these can be found scattered around the web, but I have 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 five letters (or ten, fifteen or… let’s not get ahead of ourselves, eh?). I may add the odd one of my own, too.

Let me know what you think.


(for Kristian –

Godiva rode nude on a horse
Repeat from last week? Yes, of course.
A peeper called Thomas
Couldn’t help break his promise
Exhibiting no real remorse.


(for fun)

Quantum physics is well beyond me
Using concepts I can’t even see
And that cat, is it dead?
Really? Who could have said?
Kindly fetch me a hot cup of tea.


(for fun)

Five times every day, on this chair
I sit and pretend not to care.
For, twenty years on,
The pain hasn’t gone;
Your thumbtack will always be there.


Anyone else care to join in?
