Saint Patrick, He Is A Great One (A Limerick)

That Patrick, he is a great one,
His staff, it's surely a straight one,
He drives out the snakes,
While good Christians he makes,
Of Ireland, he is the patron.

Who most harrowing ghost stories read
He sat up all night
And shivered with fright
Till the hair stood straight up on his head

He's only a head and a tail
No fingers or toes
Yet, there it goes!
Just follow its shiny, bright trail.

If you have an unwanted tomato
Or onion, or squash, or potato
To toss it with speed
These words you should heed
"Just give it to one Johnny Cueto!"

Some ski, some sled, some skate
They're thinking a gold would be great
A handheld device
Or a telly'd be nice
To watch and to learn of their fate.

She seems so thin and willowy,
Her movements lithe and billowy, --
She tells you quite freely,
'Tis walking that really
Prevents her from growing too fat!

Pete was a very odd fellow
He loved to make lemon jello
But he did not savor
The stuff for its flavor - 
He used it to paint his house yellow.

The Dramatic Actress - Vintage Limerick Postcard

She thinks she's a dramatic queen
And that all of the critics are "mean"
But the thespian art
She brings to a part
Is some wiggles and lots of blondine.

There was a young man from Spain
He had a very small brain
Math wasn't easy
It made him feel queasy
So he moved to a cabin in Maine.

Yes Valentine's Day is nigh
So watch for the cute, little guy
A dart from his quiver
Will make your heart shiver
- You're smitten, and will not know why.
