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.
There once was a young politician
Escaped from the strictures patrician.
No lawmakers can
Detain this young man,
Especially when he’s on a mission.
Regardless how oft he abstains,
No mere vote can stop his campaigns.
Even his friend
Said this is the end,
Some day he’ll be locked up in chains!
Smirk just as much as you please
My resolve will be strengthened with ease.
If you think you’re smart,
Reply from your heart;
Know this: I like pickle with cheese!
How often have you seen a ghost?
Asked Marvin, our affable host.
Until we convene
No-one will have seen
The house that is haunted the most.
Anyone care to join in?
