Acrostic Limericks 8

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.

SIGHT

(for Kristian – https://talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com/2020/07/29/sight/)

Sylvester looked tired on his hike
I sold him my old mountain bike.
Good job there’s no rain,
He’d have to explain
That it doesn’t have brakes. What’s he like?


FIRST

(for Kristian – https://talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com/2020/08/03/first/)

First chance I get, I’ll go shopping.
It’s down to the market I’m popping.
Reclassify
Someone will cry
Tomorrow, you’ll see the price dropping.


TOAST

(for Esther – https://esthernewtonblog.wordpress.com/2020/08/03/laughing-along-with-limerick/)

Toast for breakfast is quite alimental
Or for lunch would not be detrimental.
Alternatively,
Some like it for tea
Though that could be termed incidental.


Anyone else care to join in?
