Limerick writers choose

If they’ll follow news…

Or focus

On certain business,

Poking others views!

Communists in California,

Seen by liberals as normal…

The public’s sucked in

For years this has been,

Their equating has just been acknowledged  in a matter formal!

Or do I focus on Christ—

His world-changing sacrifice…

Both things are true

Yet which to pursue,

Politics ALWAYS bites!

Of the two only Christ,

Reliably offers His lights…

Those other guys

Too often disguise

For whom they are acolytes!

Besides all this we note,

Not everyone’s in the same boat…

Politically involved

No sin resolves,

Politics is mostly getting someone’s goat!

So I choose Christ and will try

To not let my opinions fly…

But don’t worry

I will not curry

Favor of the other side!  🙂

As weather is growing colder,

Old Jack Frost grows bolder…

He blows through clothes

And panty hose,

So tighten that coat on your shoulders!

A cat climbed up the tree,

To see what he could see…

And wouldn’t come down

With dogs around,

But waited until evening to de-tree.

A boyfriend groomed and showered,

But his aftershave overpowered…

His beautiful date

And it was too late

To soften the effect of her glower!

She tries to tickle her man,

To prove to him that she can…

The challenge was steep,

He fell right to sleep

Twas useless to tickle that man!

You’ve heard of that lady from Niger

Who was swallowed while riding a tiger…

Tiger acid reflux

Made for redux,

The lady escaped from the tiger!

While living in a lighthouse,

Every morning the light is doused…

Lens cleaning is fine

If you don’t go blind,

And be led around by your spouse!

A story on the Internet,

Is one I haven’t gotten to yet…

Hand sanitizers work

Or of them should we shirk,

Is it too long ago to vet?

While traveling home one night,

I saw strangely arranged light…

It could have been

A U.F.O. then,

It followed me with silent flight!

I hope my car tire inflates

Were the shop people really cheap-skates…

To say it was new

But be worn through,

I hope it stays up like its mates!

Just remembering Editor Deex,

And his concise critiques…

I wrote of a zoo

And got it wrong, too,

Had one of those brain fart leaks!!!

His PENTATETTE publication,

Turned into an education…

A MENSA project

Which I suspect

Was opened to make sure propagation.

He and his staff used “quote tease”

To energize the devotees…

“Limerick writer as friend,

Troubles never end”:

No need for enemies!!!!

Writing limericks reverberating,

One must be exacerbating…


The font of desire,

Even better–quips about mating.

Alas, I tone mine down,

A Christian must keep his head sound…

But in thought

By the Lord he is caught,

And I’m thankful God’s grace is profound!
