Dispatching Your Tickle Let's do Limericks Edward Lear Our Language

A charming young woman from France

Said: 'Do you think there’s a possible chance -

    If I go on a cruise

    With my new dancing shoes,

I could possibly learn how to dance?'


There was a young woman from Crewe

Who cried: 'Help me!  Oh what can I do?'

     She looked so perplexed –

     For what can you do next

When you’ve stepped in some messy dog poo?


A woman who came from Hong Kong

By the name of Miss Madeleine Wong,

     Said: 'I think that fried rice

     Should smell rather nice -

But mine has a terrible pong!'


A teacher, who comes from Dundee,

Said: 'I think you will surely agree:

    You’ll sell pizzas better

    Or deliver a letter

If you work hard and get a degree.'


A mystified gardener from Leeds

Said: 'I recently planted some seeds.

    They went in the ground

    Oh, but what have I found?

Every one of them came up as weeds.'


A tall young mechanic from France

Said: 'I think I am in with a chance

     For a girl with some style

     Has thrown me a smile –

And I’ll ask for the very next dance.'


A Thingmejig’s big and it’s round –

And you can buy two for a pound.

      'Then what would you do?'

       Oh I hoped that you knew -

For they're little use - that's what I've found.


Limericks are tricky to write

So come to my poetry site:

      I think you’ll agree

      Leave the writing to me

And you’ll not find yourself in a plight.
