Acrostic Limericks 38

© 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 (

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!


For Kristian (

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?
