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.
Whether it be right or wrong,
Ricky will still sing his song.
Once he’s in flight,
No chance of respite.
Guess we should all sing along!
Sniff — and I’ve caught a damned cold.
Now it’s bound to pay back seven-fold.
I‘ll infect everyone
From my Nan to my son
For not wrapping up when I was told.
Anyone care to join in?
