Acrostic Limericks 29

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.

Just one this week:


For Esther (

Teach and explain, the man said
Each time that I spoke to the Head.
And when I tried, he
Could quite clearly see
How deep was my visceral dread!

Anyone care to join in?
