MARCH MIRTH

SEBASTIAN BECK The trapeze artist Sebastian Beck His safety harness he forgot to check Didn't notice it had snapped Below all the crowd clapped But in mid-flight he fell breaking his neck... SIR NICHOLAS The trophy hunter Sir Nicholas Hyde Because of him many animals died One day his gun jammed He said I'll be damned Last seen running for his life from a pride... CHRISTOPHER  SNODGRASS A mean joker called Christopher Snodgrass Liked to play jokes on his friends that were crass They agreed revenge was due On his toilet seat smeared glue When he stood it took the skin off his a.s.s... OLD SPARKY A sadistic killer called Billy T. Clair As a trophy cut off his victims hair But one did not die Vowed she'd see him fry She got her wish when he went to the chair... STALE AIR Between floors at the gallery of art A lift got stuck and the doors wouldn't part The air was rancid as hell And the trapped folk smelt a smell Someone discreetly had let off a fart... Written 1st March 2020.

I wonder what the collective term is for limericks, Maybe a "Clinic" of Limericks? Tom, these are superb.

these were GREAT limericks. especially 2,3 and 5. That first one, not so funny to me. (hmmmm). But I am assuming it's a true person and I don't have a clue if you just made up the names or not!!

Thanks Andrea, all my limericks' are pure fiction, I would never write about any real event or person that had bad luck. Tom

Tom, I almost choked on me cuppa when I read these very witty lims. I love great lims and these are GREAT ones indeed! Glad you enjoyed the Jesus Counts Hair write. No offense to you good folks who have shed a few hairs over the years. Mine seems to get thinner day by day! Take good care - Bob
