Lance’s Laugh-along-a-Limerick

I am REALLY missing Esther Chilton’s weekly Monday and Thursday challenges while she recuperates from her painful surgery. They have become part of my life in recent months. I am sure that some of her regulars, listed below, must be missing her as much as I do.

Esther: we all wish you a speedy recovery.

While she is away, she has kindly granted me permission to replicate her Limerick and Five Word Stories, although I admit that I am a poor substitute!

So, a few days late, I give you three words that reflect the nature of the weather, in UK anyway, for the recent May Day Bank Holiday, and look forward to enjoying your limericks if you care to share.




Regular contributors on Esther’s Blog: Keith Channing, Ritu, Kim Smyth, Christine Mallaband-Brown, Trent’s World, The Hidden Edge, Ruth Scribbles, Tessa, EDC Writing.

Apologies to those for whom I could find no link. Please feel free to forward to everyone you know who might enjoy some fun participation.

Or RE-BLOG if you think that your friends and follower might enjoy the fun.

    Here in England the weather is mild, they say
    But it’s so wet that it makes me wild this May
    My hair is damp from the rain
    Good job that I am quite vain
    Moist air is good for my complexion- Hurrah

    Writing poetry in a non native tongue is an impossible task This is pretty silly.

  3. Very good, Eva. I like the positive spin on the end.
    THANKS for being the first to participate. Appreciated!


  4. Wooden houses fail when the air is moist.
    The doors don’t fit and it bends the joists.
    Our roof was leaky
    and our floors were squeaky.
    When we moved to bricks and mortar, we all rejoiced.

    I had some time on my hands so…

    In surveys, the worst word is moist
    But really if you were given a choist
    Where would you rank
    Words like feces and dank?
    Would you still put moist as foist?

    When the weather turns murky and damp
    I find my buttocks will cramp.
    To try and imagine
    The extent of my chagrin
    It’s like putting your arse in a clamp.

    I long ago ceased to fret
    When people described me as wet
    If I become decisive
    They turn derisive
    And then up the het they will get
