Sit a spell and read my limericks
meant to please, tongue in cheek, for kicks
near Patrick's Day
I will write away
For Your pleasure and for St. Patrick's

 

 

There once was a lass from the East
who found man to be such a beast
Then one took her heart
and she couldn't depart
from the West to go back to the East

He visits, this wild bird I call Trot
flies to my feeder right on the dot.
He eats all the seeds
then takes care of his needs;
on my driveway he leaves his s-p-l-o-t!

A merry young lass was she
with a spirit so wild and free
she'd flip her tail
at the sight of a male
then purr "I'm spayed, can't you see!"

If you have assets you like to display
in a most strange and unusual way
take heed 'fore you show
you really should know
liabilities may be exposed in a fray.

They met on the road to Capri
this lad and lass, spirits free
but they did pay the fine
nine months down the line,
from the consequence they could not flee.

There's young Tim who needed a shave
to prance as the handsome knave
but it wasn't his stubble
that caused his trouble
'twas his lacking that caused his dismay

He held his head quite high
o'er the bricks he'd tread with a sigh.
He'd gambled his pay
then loudly would bray
"Ah dear, all me hard work for naigh"

A flirtatious lad name of Sean
was naughty from the day he was born
he'd run on the double
to hide from his trouble
but was caught and his manhood soon shorn

T'is but one soul of Ireland, I think
and 'tis the Hill of Tara that I speak.
By deceipt, greed, and fright
'dozers are levelling near this site,
while Thieves reveal their soul-less  beak!

 
Sadly...
'Tis the truth, this last limerick. As you read, corrupt Irish officials are allowing this unlawful (more than one Irish protection law, European Union/Commision -  EU Environmental Law)
distruction near Ancient Tara and Skryne Valley (especially at undermining Rath Lugh monument and esker)to build a new "freeway on/off ramp" and the M3. An alternate route was proposed, and could have been designated, costing less than the distructive route; but then the Thieves of Tara (and pockets of Irish Govmt.) do not own the land along the alternate route! Young rotating protesters,
camped at Tara and Rath Lugh, have been on-site attempting for over a year to stop the devistation and deny the Thieves of their willful greed.

 

For the past few months, under dark of night, the Tara Protesters built a reinforced tunnel, and a brave, true -hearted Irish lass is now there in the tunnel. As this is posted, 60+ heavy duty bull-dozers, and digging equipment are approaching the area. ..for no needful reason. But soon it will be dark...a reprieve 'til morn.
Pray for the protesters.

If any of you will be near Washington D.C. on Wed., 30 April, 2008, go join in the "SAVE TARA" demonstration outside the U.S. Capital
Building, where  Bernie Ahern, Taoiseach (Gaelic for Prime Minister) Ireland, will be giving a speech to our Joint Houses of Congress. Many U.S. Citizens of Irish heritage will be gathering for the demonstration, and ALL are welcome to join in and support the cause.

NOTE:  Mr. Ahern has been undergoing extensive questioning and investigation by an Anti-corruption Tribunal in Ireland. He should make
good company for our Executive Branch...

These made me laugh... except the last one. So sad that so much beauty and history is being destroyed all in the name of progress.

Limericks are a guilty pleasure of mine, but somehow mine always turn a little too "shaky" for online print. Yours are fantastic, Micke. I haven't tried to write one in ages; maybe I'll see if I can actually compose a clean one.

Thanks for sharing these. Have a Happy Palm Sunday, a Happy St. Patrick's Day, and a great weekend (not in that order).

Thank you for sharing your wit, Jackie. I love limericks but I find that I have to be "in the mood." Here's one of mine:

A gal from this town named Shirelle
Likes to shop through the "Buy and Sell"
A juicer she bought
Even though it was "hot"
Now Shirelle is the belle of a cell

Love and best wishes,

Regis (Reg)

You've penned some marvelous limericks, my friend. And it seems that no part of the world, no matter how sacred or steeped in tradition or history, is being saved from the very bloody modern bulldozer these truly sad days.

Nothing than a bottle of old Jameson can't cure, spry good over the corrupt officials and let somebody else to ligh the match.

Yes, he should. Fun lines and read. I hate it when they don't appreciate historic sites!! We'll never have them again. Same happens in our country sometimes, as you well know.

Ireland never changes at all at all........

There once was an old man of Esser,
Whose knowledge grew lesser and lesser,
It at last grew so small
He knew nothing at all,
And now he's an Irish college professor.

Cleverly penned, Jackie, well done. Sad when government officials decide what's good for the goose isn't for the gander -
