Lend Them Your Limericks


The All Blacks thought they couldn’t lose
The test with the Lions a cruise
But the Lions proved tougher
And meaner and rougher
And the All blacks Slunk off amidst boos!

Martin Cahill

A geezer named Donald Trump,
Gave most of the world the hump
When he said to them all
I’ll build a big wall
And the brickies ill pay on the lump

Mick O’Brien

I once knew a dolphin called Jim
Who went and forgot how to swim.
He quite nearly drowned,
Jumped up on the ground,
And prayed ’til he sprouted a limb.

Darren Hughes

An eager young beaver named Leo
Was Enda’s pretend Alter Ego
Til one day with a shout
He cried, “please let me out!”
And now he’s Fine Gael’s Padre Pio

Frances Browner

There is a wonderful place in the west
A City which is the very best
The People, the Places and all the smiling faces
A step above all the rest.

    jesus h. christ on a stick
    it’s a contest for new limericks
    whoe’er can compose ’em
    can win some big wampum
    which comes in the form of a brick.
