Acrostic Limericks 30

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 Kristian (

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!


For Kristian (

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!


For Esther (

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?
