Esther’s Challenge – Laugh-along-a-Limerick

Happy New Week to you all and welcome, once again, to Esther Chilton’s regular Monday challenge. In UK, the hot, sunny weather is welcome, but we must all take care of ourselves as the conditions could endanger us if we are not careful. So, sit in the shade and write a limerick to keep us entertained.

Today, Esther’s one-word prompt is SCORCH. So can you write a limerick using the word SCORCH in it somewhere?

If you want to swerve around the weekly prompt, please feel free to ignore it and write a limerick to suit your current mood and feelings. Just let it flow. Delight us all with your creativity.

Post your submissions in the Comments on this post.

  1. Today I’ll be on the porch
    To avoid the heat and the scorch
    It’s really hot here
    So with a nice cold beer
    I’ll sit out at night with my torch!

    I watched the weather today
    It’ll be a scorcher, they say
    Try to stay cool
    Maybe go to the pool
    Just be careful, I pray
    There once was a primitive dude
    Who learned to scorch his food
    No longer to eat
    Only raw meat
    Cooked mammoth is better, if crude

  3. There once was a comic called Brian,
    Whose wit was as hot as an iron,
    His words could scorch
    Like a blowtorch
    Withal; he was more lamb than lion!

  5. By trade I’m a dragon slayer.
    I ride on a wing and a prayer.
    A scorch could mean death,
    So I dodge fiery breath
    To survive as the oldest sword player.
