Acrostic Limericks 17

© 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 Kristian (

Hobbies – a way to pass time
Or engage in a passion sublime
Before you commit
Be sure it’s legit
You may be mixed up in a crime


For Kristian (

Sales are when shopping is hot
All items are cheaper – a lot!
It seems I’ve derailed,
Linguistically failed,
Sails are found most on a yacht!


For Kristian (

Unhappy, I sit on the verge
Repeating the mantra-like dirge:
Good times I’ll see
So, till then, my urge I’ll submerge.


For Kristian (

Stalk means the same thing as stem
Talk can be used to condemn
Alk ain’t a word,
Lk is absurd
K’s just a letter, like M.

Anyone care to join in?
