A LIMERICK

IS SOMETHING YOU EAT

By Josie Whitehead

A Limerick is Something You Eat

A limerick is something you eat.

It’s round, and it’s ever so sweet.

      They’re quite easy to make

      And taste something like cake -

Or you may prefer mine, for a treat!

 

A limerick’s not easy to chew.

I expect this is something you knew.

       Your teeth will fall out,

       There isn’t a doubt,

And, tell me, what then will you do?

 

A limerick can’t increase your wealth,

Though I’m told they are good for your health -

          But - they’re dangerous too

          So, whatever you do,

Approach them with caution and stealth.

 

You’ll find things I write are not true,

Though I write them especially for you.

           I hope Edward Lear

           Will not now appear.

Oooh a ghost?  Well now what shall I do?
