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