The no-fly list limerick

The no-fly list limerick

A fly in the ointment
Cannot hide his disappointment,
With a no-fly list
How will he insist
On proving his privileged anointment?”

The Government had come out sometime back with a set of rules for the no-fly, to rein in unruly flyers and ensure the safety and security of passengers.

Limerick on the renaming of roads in Delhi

Limerick on the renaming of roads in Delhi

One brother lost his name,
The other has his claim to fame,
One Mughal a poison toad,
The other perceived as antipode,
What next in the road rechristening game?

Limerick on the issue with China

Limerick on the issue with China
By Bibek Debroy

The dragon breathes more fire 
Threatening consequences dire,
With Bhutan in sight 
It displays its might,
But there is nothing to make India perspire.

Limerick On cows

Limerick On cows

By Bibek Debroy (Apr 26 2017)

There was a cow that said, “Moo!
This is more than I can chew.
It isn’t a polythene bag,
It is a polyurethane tag.
My Aadhaar number shouldn’t lead to a hullabaloo”.

Bad Memory Limerick

Bad Memory Limerick

While in law school I’d frequently curse
My poor mem’ry, which now’s become worse.
And this ain’t just a riff;
I’ll be jubilant if
I remember to finish this verse.

Homing Limerick

Homing Limerick

By Madeleine Begun Kane

I may travel and wander and roam.
For adventure, the streets I may comb.
But wherever I go,
Here’s the one thing I know:
There is nothing and no place like home.

Search Engine Limerick

Search Engine Limerick

When your site’s on the first page of Bing
And Google, you whistle and sing,
Cuz your marketing plan
Just might work. You’re “The Man,”
As your Net takes a large upward swing.

LIMERICK ON RENT UNPAID

LIMERICK ON RENT UNPAID

A fellow got mad — lost his head.
Told his girlfriend, “Get out of my bed.”
But it’s best not to vent
When you’re not paying rent.
He currently sleeps in a shed.

Limerick on a Nurse

Limerick on a Nurse

A STUDENT NURSE CALLED PATSY PROCTOR,
HAD AMBITIONS TO MARRY THE DOCTOR.
SHE WORKED WITH A LOT,
WHO WOULD NOT TIE THE KNOT,
WHO CALLED HER A “MOUSETRAP” AND MOCKED HER!!
