There once was an odd man from Harrow,
Who believed that he was a Sparrow,
He’d perch upon ledge, and build nests in a hedge,
But at night he would sleep in a barrow.

(Edit: Had to update the ending to make it sound better)


Timbuktoo Stu’

A young man who came from ‘buktoo,
Looked like he belonged in a Zoo,
So big was his head,
All swollen and red,
It looked like the arse of a baboon!

Who Knew?

I once knew a man from Woking,
Not really, I am only joking,
The truth is he was from Carlisle,
Although I haven’t seen him in a while.

My limericks, somewhat “Edward Leary”
I labeled and categorized clearly,
I’d keep the right time, and rhyme the last line,
At least (I thought) that was the theory.

There was a young girl named Stephanie,
Who longed to have an epèphany,
She’d stay up all night, just to find insight,
Which worried her poor mother Persephone!
