A Few Limericks 3
By Jim Nasium

A Limerick: A light or humorous verse form of five chiefly anapestic verses of which lines one, two and five are of three feet and lines three and four are of two feet, with a rhyme scheme of aabba. The limerick, named for a town in Ireland of that name, was popularized by Edward Lear in his Book of Nonsense published in 1846.

OUR SHOPPING 1

Our shopping can be a real bore
what do we need our shopping for
let them deliver
give me a sliver
of the pie from down near the core

and...

OUR SHOPPING 2

Our shopping is a bad habit
it just has to stop dab nab it
you spend my money
and it's not funny
I'm so tired of your bullshit

and...

OUR SHOPPING 3

Our shopping every once a week
forces us for bargains to seek
like ugly swans
we clip coupons
buying juice containers that leak

and...

OUR SHOPPING 4

Our shopping always takes hours
when we get home we need showers
the mall is so hot
and then we forgot
to get a card and some flowers

and...

OUR SHOPPING 5

Our shopping for a xmas gift
supposedly our spirits lift
best to give not receive
with a trick up my sleeve
I stand by and watch seasons shift

RIDICULOUS 1

Ridiculous is all I can say
about what I saw the other day
right out in the street
it was kind of neat
in a very surreal sort of way

and

RIDICULOUS 2

Ridiculous rumors abound
listen and you can hear the sound
of some folks babbling
but only dabbling
in fact they're just messing around

and

RIDICULOUS 3

Ridiculous as it may seem to you
I still don't know exactly what to do
stuck in a corner
damn near a goner
it's not much fun when you know your time's through

RIDICULOUS 4

Ridiculous is an under statement
about the effects of the elatement
that we were drinking
while we were thinking
about finding the right place for placement

RIDICULOUS 5

Ridiculous to me was her stance
not to mention the way that she'd dance
while out on the floor
she acted the whore
not very interested in romance

************

Talk

You probably never ever should talk at all
stuck in a corner with your back against the wall
silence is golden they say
keep your mouth shut tight today
and if you never stand up then you'll never fall

************

THE PLANET 1

The planet is getting smaller every day
no matter what you heard or what people say
that's they way it be's
cutting down the trees
won't help the planet or save us any way

and then there is this one....

THE PLANET 2

The planet is really perfectly round
that is the one thing true that they had found
the planet will bloat
and yes it will float
around the sun even when it goes down

************

THE UNIVERSE

The universe I must confess
will soon be another big mess
if and when man
gets an new plan
and then moves out there more or less

************

ENDURING

Enduring is not easy to do
for me, but I wonder about you
what do you say
it's a new day
what's your plan as to how to get through

************

THE BANKS 1

The banks close to early for me
why must they all close around three
no place to park
and now it's dark
it's getting hard for me to see

and this one:

THE BANKS 2

The banks of the river are so muddy
and very hard to climb up on for me
the water is fast
nothing ever last
but things are exactly as they should be

************

APARTMENTS

Apartments are very hard to find
it can make ya go out of your mind
it will make you cry
the rent is so high
it is too late once the lease is signed

************

OUR GARBAGE

Our garbage follows us around
hide your face when you are down
iron out the kinks
because garbage stinks
the news spreads quickly across town

************

THE STORMS

The storms that come in and out of our life
can some times cut us just like a sharp knife
so take it slow
one day you'll know
there is no way to get away from strife

************

EQUALITY

Equality between the sexes they say
will definitely be balanced out some day
his, her and ours
Venus and Mars
will work out fine sooner or later some way

************

SMALL

Is it true that you are rather small
and you always respond to the call
eat all your food
please don't be rude
and maybe some day you will grow tall

************

DIMENSIONS

Dimensions are not like before
now a days there are really four
depth, height and width
just drink a fifth
and then you will see so much more

************

AN ISSUE

An issue that hangs around
is the very loud bass sound
from a car
very far
they should turn the music down

************

WATERS

Her anger is like lumpy gravy
she's got a foul mouth from the Navy
she gets mad
then she's sad
the waters of her life are wavey

************

AN IDIOT 1

An idiot and I talked one fine day
now that idiot has gone far away
I can't say where
but it's not here
and that same idiot is gone to stay

and then there's this one

AN IDIOT 2

An idiot can be your friend
but I never want one again
way too moody
at least for me
when I had too much I say when

************

TRYING

you may be a pill or a card
but one thing is you do try hard
take it slow
when you go
be careful not to slip on lard

************

TURTLES

If you ever saw turtles in the spring
it sure would make your sad broken heart sing
they are not snappy
they all seem sappy
and all day long they don't do anything

************

ALLOWING

Allowing things to go as they will
has given my spirit a big thrill
some more each day
goes it's own way
and I feel like the fool on the hill

************

TRANSFORMED

Transformed into less than I was
in my ear I can hear a buzz
in a crowd
it gets loud
after I shave I get new fuzz
