A series of (non-acrostic) limericks produced in response to various prompts.

These will appear on Saturday mornings wherever possible.

Let me know what you think.

Propine is word of the Scot;
They’re known as a generous lot.
Though sometimes quite tight,
On Hogmanay night,
They’ll give you much more than they got.

I once had a really good friend
Twas a thing I thought never would end
But when he shaved his beard
He looked totally weird
Like a pig, or at least its back end.

A miner who worked underground
Uncovered a truth to astound.
“There is no salvation
In reincarnation,
So let’s come back rich, next time round!”

I once knew a man from abroad
Whom everyone lined up to laud.
He’d done something great,
He told us – but wait,
He might be a flawed fraud called Claud.

My brother just put me in charge
Of an antediluvian barge.
It needs creosote
To keep it afloat,
And he says we’re living it large!

I decided to write a sitcom
About robots defusing a bomb.
I was sure it would work
Till some silly jerk
Referred me to google.com.


for Kristian – https://talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com/2020/12/18/verklempt/

My friend looked at me with contempt
When I told her that I was verklempt.
She asked, “What’s that mean?”
But she must have seen
My emotions had all gone unkempt.
