Even more limericks on sombre topics.

Proof perhaps that a limerick can make even the darkest of topics more pleasant…

Today, I pay tribute (or a homage if you will) to those that have suffered at the hands of this cruel cruel world.  

I believe that the limerick form can cheer up even the most horrid of subjects.  What do you reckon?


There once was a man from gelong

Who enjoyed to put on his wife’s thong

Slipped and fell, it’s no laugh

Cut his balls clean in half

now soprano at church sing along


A young fellow caught wifey in bed

with a big burly fellow called Ted

Who was quite well endowed

and incredibly proud

Took the house, car and both kids instead


Once a vicar who rather liked kids

and confessed of the bad things he did

seems that’s all that it takes

when you make big mistakes

guaranteed by the church to keep hid


Want to read more of my stuff?  No.  Don’t blame you, no offence taken.

  1. You got this inspiration from the news I wagger? Maybe we are not talking of the same, but I am kinda leaning to a pastor in USA that had a similar story and publicly asked for forgiveness. Was that the thing that motivated you for this piece?
