The road looked as wide as the ocean,
But the chicken had taken a notion.
She strutted across
As her head gave a toss,
And she knew she was poultry in motion.

"We dinosaurs' long necks
Are intricate, complex,
Involved, confounded,
Snarled, compounded,"
Said Thesaurus Rex.

THREAD: Don't Be A Snooty-Snot, come and Limerick At Sallys!!!
Oh, gosh! This is tougher than I thought...need some time...I will be back, in the meanwhile I hope someone else picks up the limerick gauntlet here!

I thought I would never say this...but...
I have been trying to come up with a clever funny and clean animal limerick for hours now, and all I've got to show for it is a headache. From the looks of things, I may not be the only one who isn't limerickly-gifted around here. My hat's off to you and your standing as queen of the limericks! I'm not giving up though, I'll hatch something eventually, this is indeed a good exercise for my pitiful braincells. I'll be back, though I may not come back clean.

limerick or something like that
A rat be he man or mouse
must be run out of the house
He refuses to leave
Becomes a pet peeve
Decon will be end of that louse

Well I tried...Kacee

God Forgive Me! I Know Not What I Am Doing....

There once was a Pig named Sam,
he had a computer named Cam,
on which he did write,
because he so loved to type,
and all day long he did spam!

RAM? Oh, duh, BAM!!!
See, Desvelado aka Francisco is right! Of course Ram instead of Cam, duh? Enough of this! Too much limerick fun for one day...I am exhausted. Thanks a lot, Sally, see what it did to me? Heehee! Just kidding. I did enjoy the challenge.

I love limericks! I posted one some time ago (I forget the title) and got little response. I offer this flawed piece in response (ie, I rhymed hat with hat)

There once was a cat in a hat
He liked to do this and do that
Thing One and Thing Two
They liked to play too
Did the kids keep it under their hat?

Animal Limerick, # 1

Noah, preparing his ark
Told the animals they must embark
The birds and the bees
Were too happy to please
But hed trouble convincing the shark

Animal Limerick #2

The cat of old Father O' Flannigan
Was the centre of many shenanigan
The mice he would catch
And humanely dispatch
Then with the help of the Lord bring em back again

animal limericks
Here is another one of my own:

The hawk was a wide-eyed blinker.
The lion was known as a slinker.
The skunk had an air
That was foul, till a bear
Ate the threesome, hawk, lion, and stinker.

I thannk you for the revival of the limerick. It should receive its own category here at lit.

This one refers to an obscure story of mine-

There once was a puppy named Peeve,
In my pocket he chose to relieve.

He saw a great show,
which ended in woe,
but the Doctor's cat met the worst grief.

Eric, I like your poems. They are clever, but they are not limericks. Limericks must have five lines, of which the first, second, and fifth each have three accents and end in words that rhyme with each other. Lines three and four have two accents each and rhyme with each other. The same word may not be repeated at the end of more than one line. Try again. I know you can do it.

animal thread
Here's another one from Sally:

The pachyderm star whom we herald
Sang scat, pop, and jazz, and she caroled.
She now lives in fame,
And we honor the name
Of the wonderful Elephant Gerald.

Hey, Lucie, your best limerick, in my opinion, is "The King of Cockroaches." Good job! I also like Shannon's "Noah, preparing his ark." Both of these have good rhyme and rhythm. I know it's hard to come up with a good play on words or pun for the last line, but in addition to the rhyme and rhythm, I think that makes a good limerick.
Sometimes it takes a long time to get all the factors right.
