Acrostic Limericks 23

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.

BIRTH

For Kristian (https://talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com/2020/11/25/birth/)

Birth’s not a thing I recall;
I just have no mem’ry at all.
Regardless, I know
That it must be so;
How else did I just trip and fall?

BLAME

For Kristian (https://talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com/2020/11/28/blame/)

Being the youngest of seven
Living in rural south Devon.
Always the same,
Mine is the blame,
Even though my name’s not Kevin.

SNOOL

For Kristian (https://talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com/2020/12/01/snool/)

Some people have seen how I drool;
No wonder they think I’m a fool.
Oh, please be my guide,
Or else let me hide;
Lead me and let me be your snool.

Anyone care to join in?
