BASICS OF A LIMERICK


BASICS OF A LIMERICK


What is a limerick, Mother?
It’s a form of verse, said her brother
In which lines one and two
Rhyme with five when it’s through
And three and four rhyme with each other!

LIMERICK ON AN INFATUATED LOVER

LIMERICK ON AN INFATUATED LOVER


An infatuated man from Dover,
Was left by his imaginary lover,
He pulled his hair,
In sheer despair,
Forgetting a wig was his cover.

A Limerick on Recession

Limerick on Recession


There was this thing called Recession,
On coming it gave a temporary impression,
But with each passing day,
It refused to go away,
And steadily it became a Great Depression!

Limerick on a Prince Of Bombay


There was a young prince of Bombay
Who would always have his way
He pampered his horses
On five or six courses
Himself eating nothing but hay

A NONSENSE LIMERICK BY EDWARD LEAR

A NONSENSE LIMERICK BY EDWARD LEAR


There was an Old Man of Madras,
Who rode on a cream-colored Ass;
But the length of its ears 
So promoted his fears,
That it killed that Old Man of Madras.

A Limerick on Swine Flu

Limerick on Swine Flu


There was this disease called swine flu,
That spread and they all didn’t know what to do,
They called it H1N1,
And hoped it would be done,
But now in airports more deadly than a bomb is an achoo!

A Limerick on Bangalore

A Limerick on Bangalore


BY SUNIL RAJGURU ( November 9, 2009 )


There was this place called Bangalore,
Where it seemed digging was the main chore,
For all sorts of pipes and roads they dug,
For Metro, flyovers and underpasses they dug,
Ab ye dil maange digging no more!

There was a small boy of Quebec

There was a small boy of Quebec


By Rudyard Kipling


“There was a small boy of Quebec
Who was buried in snow to his neck
When they said, ‘Are you friz?’
He replied, ‘Yes, I is —
But we don’t call this cold in Quebec.’”

LIMERICK ON FELLOW FROM TRINITY


LIMERICK ON FELLOW FROM TRINITY


There was a young fellow from Trinity
Who found the cube root of infinity.
But it gave him such fidgits
To add up the digits,
He chucked math and took up divinity.

Based on a Quote by George Gamow
[pronounced “GAM-off”] 
(March 4 1904 – August 19 1968) 
He was a Ukrainian born physicist and cosmologist.
