A LIMERICK POET’S GLORY

A LIMERICK POET’S GLORY

A limerick poet’s glory,

Is an extremely short story…

No shaggy dogs

Or multi-word logs,

Just sweet and short and gory!

—Jonathan Caswell

** a..shaggy dog…is a long-winded story with an exrremely simple or pun-like ending.

TRIM AND FIT

TRIM AND FIT

(no relation to a similar-sounding brand name!)

A trim lovely lady passed by,

His attempted conversationĀ  died…

But the clouds cleared

She left him cheered,

Abundantly sweet in his eyes!

–Jonathan Caswell

THAT LIMERICK BEAST

THAT LIMERICK BEAST

Limericks tend to be pithy

In subjects somewhat iffy…

If this offends

Before this ends

I’ll have one more in a jiffy!

Sarcasm, satire and jest

Suit the limerick best…

If ya can’t take a joke

Then be a good bloke

And passĀ it on to the rest.

–Jonathan Caswell
