LIMERICK ON A GERBIL

A creature of charm is the gerbil
Its diet’s exclusively herbal;
It grazes all day
On bunches of hay
Passing gas with an elegant burble

LIMERICK ON EARS

LIMERICK ON EARS

There was a young man from Devizes,
whose ears were two different sizes.
The first was so small
it was no use at all
but the other won hundreds of prizes.

Who flagged the express with her pecticut

There was a young pupil named Kevin,
Who went to a school in south Devon.
He wasn’t too bright
So they called him “Midnight,”
And his brother was “Half-Past-Eleven.”

About Roast Spiders And Chutney

There was an old person of Putney,
Whose food was roast spiders and chutney,
Which he took with his tea,
Within sight of the sea,
That romantic old person of Putney

LIMERICK ON WHY PEOPLE MIGRATE 

LIMERICK ON WHY PEOPLE MIGRATE 

A large family in Tiru-nel-veyli
Wobbled and hobbled to feed each belly
They said “Enuf is enuf
We can’t do this stuff”
And caught slow trains to Bombay and Delhi!

LIMERICK ON POLITICIANS

LIMERICK ON POLITICIANS

More frequent the higher they rise,
their scandals and rhetorical cries—
politicians’ statistics,
misinformed, solipsistic,
corrupt practices, lies and damn lies.

A Robot Named Pete

A Robot Named Pete

There once was a robot named Pete
Who served breakfast good enough to eat
Though he made the best eggs
He still had no legs
Only wheels that ran over everyone’s feet

John had bought an autonomous robot
to manage the toilet, job he did allot.
Robot was instructed
to bring paper for toilet;

LIMERICK ON A ROBOT

LIMERICK ON A ROBOT

There once was a robot and a dog
They went together, like the gears of a cog.
The dog went away
He’s gone to this day
While the robot must continue the daily slog.
