Limerick Poems:
Poetry for Hicksville

Are you familiar with limerick poems?

There seems to be a renewed interest in limericks, even though they were popular many decades ago.

When my Dad used to take my Mom up to Indiana to visit Aunt Alice and Aunt Nellie, my cousins would beg my dad to make up rhymes about the "wide spot in the road" towns that were near the vicinity.

Many of my dad's limerick poems originated as a result of these requests.

For instance...




Funny Limericks

There was a young man named Shepperdown,
Who lived in the village of Peppertown;
He hit a horse and a cow,
A pig and a plow,
Then said - "Maybe I'd better step-er-down!!"


There once was a man named Small,
It was said he was not very tall;
He wore an affable glance,
And a pair of tight pants,
And that was just about all!
