Vintage Boat Limerick - Mary Butler

There was a young boy from Lough Ree,
Who wanted to travel the sea.
So he built a small boat,
And set it afloat,
But forgot to get in it you see!

A Good Friday - Easter Miracle Limerick


When the guilt of sin does seize us,
We should turn to our brother, Jesus,
His death on the cross,
Was truly a loss,
But the miracle on Easter - it frees us.

Little Jack Horner Limerick Postcard

Little Jack Horner stood on the corner
Waiting to catch a car
He was hit by the wheel
Of an automobile
And he never got over the jar.

The Secret Mystery of St. Patrick Revealed in Limerick Verse!

Nothing but limericks I write
No subject’s too big or too trite
So here’s a true story
That isn’t too gory
About a young lad’s dreadful plight

In Scotland, did young Patrick dwell
His life was comfy and swell
Irish brigands did float
To his home in a boat
And took him to Ireland to sell

In Ireland, Pat was a slave
And he did his best to behave
He herded the swine
Till given a sign
And left without even a wave

To home, as fast as he could
He thought, was proper and good
But he had a vision
And made a decision –
Return to Ireland he would

For Patrick, this wasn’t a game
So first, a priest he became
He returned to the isle
With nary a smile
And focused on spreading Christ’s name

There were many bad serpents about
But Patrick had never a doubt
With force he did pray
Each and every day
And the devils and snakes he cast out

So party, green beer and all
But please do your best to recall
That Patrick’s the reason
For this happy season
As you finish your pub-to-pub crawl

Ash Wednesday Limerick Poem

Today is the first day of Lent,
It's time for all souls to repent,
And with His good grace,
It's He that you'll face,
And you'll know what His sacrifice meant.

Who Is Your Favorite President - A Presidents Day Limerick

Now President's Day is nigh
So who is your favorite guy?
A William or John,
Or maybe a Don,
Or the one who could not tell a lie?

I've studied the 44 men*
And made up my mind only when
After much thinkin'
Decided that Lincoln
Was clearly the best that has been.


* Donald Trump is the 45th President, but Grover Cleveland was president for two nonconsective terms, so only 44 different men have been President

DragonVale Thistle Dragon Limerick

There once was a dragon named Thistle
Who dreamt of a day it could whistle
It huffed and it puffed
Till its tale was quite fluffed
But the best it could do was a sniffle.

An Old Miser Named Clarence - Classic Ogden Nash Limerick


There was an old miser named Clarence, 
Who simonized both of his parents. 
"The initial expense," 
He remarked, "is immense, 
But I'll save it on wearance and tearance."
