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.
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
Perhaps you may think me a geek
In defending the meaning of pique
Unless you can show
Every use is correct in your clique
Anyone care to join in?
