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 SICK. So can you write a limerick using the word SICK in it somewhere?

See if you can write a SICK limerick to entertain us all. The question is, will it be good or will it be bad? There are so many meanings to the word, so you have a lot of freedom. Most of all, see if you can make us laugh.

If you prefer 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. I’m sick of being sore
    And I really swore!
    I’ve hurt my thumb
    And its gone numb
    After I caught it in the door!

  2. The little old lady felt sick
    No fever, just really felt ick
    She went to the bar
    Drank too much, by far
    She’s under that slab by the stick

    I’m sick I almost missed this post!
    Of Esther’s challenge with Lance as host
    But end of day
    I said “hurray!”
    And wrote limerick, just to boast
    (No real boasting, but i couldn’t work in “most”, “toast” or “coast”, so… 😉 )

  4. A rambler called Old Bony Tony,
    Walked the Peak paths, which were often quite stony.
    But then he fell sick,
    And, despite needing a stick,
    He’d still roam the hills on his pony.
