Limerick, a popular form of short, humorous verse that is often nonsensical and frequently ribald. It consists of five lines, rhyming aabba, and the dominant metre is anapestic, with two metrical feet in the third and fourth lines and three feet in the others. Encyclopaedia Britannica

A series of (non-acrostic) limericks produced in response to various prompts.

These will appear on Saturday mornings wherever possible.

Let me know what you think.

 

BARMECIDE

ADJECTIVE – Illusory or imaginary and therefore disappointing.
NOUN – A person who offers benefits that are illusory or disappointing.

With promises made far and wide
And secrets he’d much rather hide,
Let there be no doubt,
The truth will come out –
Our PM is pure Barmecide.

VACCINE

for Kristian – https://talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com/2021/05/06/vaccine/

They work very hard in the labs
Producing all manner of jabs.
The folk in Verona
Won’t now get corona.
Can I get one to harden my abs?
