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

Happy Monday to you all and welcome, once again, to Esther Chilton’s regular kick-off-the-week challenge.

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

In the world of mass media with little validation, it is sometimes very difficult to distinguish between a truth and a LIE. Sometimes, that dilemma befuddles me so much that I need to have a LIE down. Perhaps you can calm me with your lyrical verse.

But, if you want to side-step 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.

  1. Lie if you want, said big Joe
    You dropped a box on my toe!
    You might deny blame
    But you’ve left me quite lame!
    They’ve got it on CCTV you know!

  2. She once told a little white lie
    That caused her big cousin to die
    Then out on a limb
    She quickly joined him
    This rhyming has gone quite awry

    MURDERER opted to lie low in the backyard,
    Lying quiet though he had been a blackguard,
    Alas, had he been calm before to avoid,
    The murder, he could have enjoyed,
    Free life and not got his conscience scarred!

    हत्यारा पिछवाड़े में लेटने का विकल्प चुना,
    बदमाश होते हुए भी चुप रहना चुना,
    काश, वह हत्या करने से पहले शांत होता,
    आज़ाद ज़िंदगी का आनंद ले सकता,
    परन्तु उसने अंतःकरण को ठेस लगाना चुना।

  4. Bank account is empty – don’t know why,
    There’s no wine on this diet to buy,
    Not being funny
    It costs more money –
    For ‘superfoods’ and that is no lie!
