More Limericks

A charming young woman from France
Said: 'Do you think there’s a possible chance -
        If I go on a cruise
        With my new dancing shoes,
I could possibly learn how to dance?'

There was a young woman from Crewe
Who cried: 'Help me!  Oh what can I do?'
      She looked so perplexed –
      For what can you do next

When you’ve stepped in some messy dog poo?

A woman who came from Hong Kong,
By the name of Miss Madeleine Wong,
         Said: 'I think that fried rice
         Should smell rather nice -
But mine has a terrible pong!'

A teacher, who comes from Dundee,
Said: 'I think you will surely agree:
        You’ll sell pizzas better
        Or deliver a letter
If you work hard and get a degree.'

A mystified gardener from Leeds
Said: 'I recently planted some seeds.
        They went in the ground
        Oh, but what have I found?
Every one of them came up as weeds.'

A tall young mechanic from France
Said: 'I think I am in with a chance,
         For a girl with some style
         Has thrown me a smile –
And I’ll ask for the very next dance.'

A Thingmejig’s big and it’s round –
And you can buy two for a pound.
       'Then what would you do?'
        Oh I hoped that you knew -

For they're little use - that's what I've found.

Limericks are tricky to write
So come to my poetry site:
         I think you’ll agree -
         Leave the writing to me
And you’ll not find yourself in a plight.
