Acrostic Limericks 26

© 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 Esther (

Santa’ll be here soon enough
Along with a sleigh-full of stuff.
Naughty or nice,
Tiers will suffice.
And who said this year should be rough?


For Kristian (

Before the snow melts on the ground,
Each child a new purpose has found;
Lidl and Aldi
Like their Vivaldi,
So let’s go and hear the bells sound.

Anyone care to join in?
