A cannibal felt rather ill
Right after having eaten his fill
Two Yanks that had gout
And one sour Kraut
Left him needing a small purple pill.

A Sporty Old Fellow Named Drake - A Drinking Limerick

A sporty old fellow named Drake
Once thought that he saw a large snake
He jumped like old Heck
And lit on his neck
And now not a drop will he take!

The Clouds, From Above, Appear White - A Limerick Poem

The clouds, from above, appear white,
From below, they appear, not so bright,
Are they light and all fluffy,
Or gray and all gruffy,
Half empty, half full, which is right?

The Jockey - A Horse Racing Limerick

The jockey's at ev'ry race course,
His mission's to sit on a horse.
If you've gotten a "tip,"
The horse is sure to slip,
And you end up with a case of remorse.

Vintage Cow Limerick - Zephyr

A farmer once called his cow "Zephyr,"
She seemed such an amiable heifer.
When the farmer drew near
She kicked off his ear,
And now he is very much deafer.

A Nervous Flyer Limerick

I'm in a tin can in the sky
I sure hope this plane can fly
Thrust, drag, and lift
With winds that are swift -
I'm glad I kissed Lisa goodbye!

Brother was gliding with ease
On his backyard flying trapeze
When Dolly he took
Young Sis couldn't look
As Dolly sailed on the breeze.

He thought that he was pretty posh
But his problem was clear
To all who were near
His armpits did need a good wash!

Her friends they all call her Drusilla
You should hear her scream
When she eats her ice cream
Her favorite flavor? Vanilla!

Burt's New Hat - Limerick Postcard

Toff Burt - to-day bought a new hat
Hung it up - whilst to luncheon he sat
When he arose, it was gone
So its loss he did mourn
And put up with one neigh batter'd flat

The Throne Room - A Toilet Limerick

I come here to sit and think,
I usually don't mind the stink,
But when it gets bad,
I am really glad,
That quick out of here I can slink.
