A mermaid sure caused a commotion by skinny dipping in the ocean her body is bare which makes seamen stare and dreaming to rub in sun lotion An angler nets her; it’s a shocker she struggles, he grabs her left knocker This makes her irate and it seals his fate - he’s consigned to Davy Jones locker! Both limericks 9,9,5,5,9 - checked with how many syllables Two Sea Themed Limericks Poetry Contest Sponsored by Tania Kitchin 7/29/19

Thanks my sweet friend, they take me about 2 minutes to write I just adore the form. I wish people wouldn't criticise me for writing bawdy poems as the limerick form is allowed to be ribald!:-) at the end of the day if they don't like my style they don't have to read - I will never change lol:-) hugs jan xx

Yessiree...a sailor can look but don’t touch...a mermaid gets rather crabby. It’s no fun at the bottom of the sea but this limerick is a whole lotta fun!
