Acrostic Limericks 16

© Can Stock Photo & damedeeso used with permission

Many examples of acrostic poems can be found scattered around the web (where the first letter of each line spells out a word when read from top to bottom), but I have found very few examples of acrostic Limericks.

I now 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 Esther (

Please don’t ever ask me for money
Unless you’ve a reason that’s funny
Releasing hard cash
Seems somehow slapdash
Except for the famed Easter Bunny


For Kristian (

Perhaps you may think me a geek
In defending the meaning of pique
Quietly go
Unless you can show
Every use is correct in your clique

Anyone care to join in?
