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 I'm sure that they live underground.
Limericks are tricky to write
So read mine on my poetry website:
I think you’ll agree
Leave the writing to me
And you’ll not find yourself in a plight.
