More limerick "just for fun" stuff; I hope it elicits a few smiles...

Tell Me About It!

There’s a lovely housemaid named Julie
Who cleans everything with patchouli
She makes the house glitter
Even the cat's litter
As has been witnessed by yours truly
A fellow by the name of Beatty
Captured and tamed a wapiti
The news quickly aired
When Beatty declared
That he’d ride his wapiti to Tahiti

There once was a house with no door
No one knew if it had a floor
They could not get in
Thought that was a sin
So they burned it and it is no more
I met a wild lady named Kate
Whom I had to domesticate
Now that she is tame
She’s indeed a fine dame
We often go out on a date
There once was a filly with no name
Everyone thought that was a shame
So they all got together
And gave her the name Feather
Now Feather is a filly of fame
There once was a dog with no bark
It was even afraid of the dark
But his owner loved him
Because on a whim
It could truly sing like a lark
There once was an aging old maid
Who was becoming afraid
That she’d never wed
Neither Ed, Fred nor Ted
So she got down on her knees and prayed
There once was a fellow named Vic
On the draw he thought he was quick
Until one day he met
A fellow named Emmet
Now Vic knows he's no quicker than a brick
There once was a very spoiled brat
Who pestered his mother for a cat
The mother grew tired
A tiger was hired
Now the brat is as quiet as a gnat
In a local tavern one night
It is said that there was a fight
Between two rowdy punks
And a couple of drunks
Morning light revealed quite a sight

Tell me about it.

Don't you just hate poets who can write limericks, never mind those who can rattle out ten and call them one poem?

I must try harder.

Thanky you Regis.

I've known many spoiled brats in my life
and believe me the tiger would not have taken the job LOL

I have another view Regis. These seem to be a little darker than the ones I have read. The first and fourth ones I take exception to. Women don't need to be tamed or domesticated. Most women today would give you an argument about that and then leave.

Women are free of the domesticated shackles of yesterday and today they are working harder than ever to help their life mates make ends meet. Women may still do the housework but then so do men.

These are written very well and they tell funny tales, but I feel these are a little darker than your previous ones. Only one of these actually made me smile where the mother hired a tiger because the child wanted a cat.

Thank you for sharing Reg.

May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister Barbie.

... you just get betterer and betterer at these, Regis. You always outdo your last limerick-string, I think, which is no mean feat. I particularly like the "brat" one today, although in a couple others you have attempted some difficult rhymes, too. Hats off to you as always! xx

Hi Regis, I have missed some reviews and I am sorry about it. I still have the infection and I am missing some of my favorites, of which you certainly are. Forgive me while i recuperate. I am still tracking you and will not let our friendship pass.
