"The Village Wedding" by Sir Samuel Luke Fildes Two Limericks by Nivedita Karthik The Society January 9, 2017 Humor, Poetry 4 Comments The gown and the date are set, caterers and florists I’ve met. The hall has been booked, no detail overlooked Wait…I don’t have a groom just yet! There once was a very young rat who thought himself a big, black bat. So, he leapt off a chair and flew through the air Straight into the jaws of a cat!

How about this? A Texas politician, once dead, Was too big for the casket they said. Then, although he had died, An enema was tried. Now he rests in a box made for bread. Reply Wendy Bourke January 9, 2017 These are a treat – and very clever. Limericks can be tricky to “pull off” … I’ve yet to write one that I’m satisfied with; though having-a-go at them is so much fun. Reply Debbie Johnson January 11, 2017 These are both well written limericks with strong rhymes and meter. They are humorous and I enjoyed them both. Keep on writing. Reply Elizabeth Boquet January 13, 2017 I think I know that rat!
