Othello - Shakespeare in Limerick

There once was a man named Othello
An outrageously jealous old fellow
When they told him some lies
Quite green turned his eyes
And like a great bull he did bellow

But her beau Bart
Broke her poor heart
He treated her badly and cruelly.

At the party held last Hallowe'en
The zombie was told
By Perloo the Bold
To give back Godiva her spleen.

And cut her little finger

I Can Stare If I Want To

A child may look at its mother
A man may look at his brother
A cat at a queen
A kid at a dean
And we may all look at each other!

The Old Man Is Snoring

It's raining quite hard - it's pouring
The tired old man is snoring
Got into bed
And bumped his head
And couldn't get up in the morning!

Liked to sit before his warm fire
So then just imagine
When he saw the dragon
In a rage, full of wrath and of ire.

And he did not know what to do
It was getting hot
In the cannibal's pot
If he didn't get out he was through.

A LEGO Limerick

A kid was trying to stack
His LEGOS - red, yellow and black
Though his effort was great
He could not lay them straight
His tower was way out-of-whack.

A Vintage Riddle Limerick - In Summer . . .

In summer much clothing I wear
Birds all love to nest in my hair
But when cold it grows
I throw off my clothes
And sleep in the frigid night air.

Minnie McFinney - Vintage Limerick

Miss Minnie McFinney of Butte
Fed always and only, on frutte.
Said she, "Let the coarse
Eat of beef and of horse
I'm a peach, and that's all there is tutte."
