SIX LIMERICKS'

A romantic young man from Sherwood 
Bought a ring for his girl and felt good
He left it on the bus
Air was blue with his cuss
Chased after it as fast as he could.

A chocolate lover from Bangalore
Couldn't get enough and wanted more
She had a big belly
Wobbled like a jelly
Now she cannot get out the front door.

There was a man who got into a lift
Someone before him had left him a gift
He gagged and he spluttered 
Under his breath muttered
Got to his floor and oh boy did he shift.

A Dutchman was wearing new clogs
Got chased by some mean looking dogs
But he could not out run
They chewed his clogs for fun 
And now they look like splintered logs.

A pilot was flying in the sky
Heard both his engines splutter and die
He'd ran out of fuel
And he felt a fool
The moral is fill up 'fore you fly.

On her birthday told hubby don't be late
And with him she wanted to celebrate
With good food and some wine
A posh place they would dine
He forgot and went drinking with a mate.

Thank you Janet, love a bit of humour. Thank you also for the other comment on the Colleen Bawn. It went in the wrong box for some reason. Tom.

Don't ask me why but this reminded me of my childhood while going to the circus in town after school.
