Lazy Limericks

Limericks of a lazy laidback lad

Limericks are supposed to be naughty and witty. Some people say that the limerick was invented by soldiers returning from France to the Irish town of Limerick in the 1700’s. Shakespeare wrote limericks which can be found in two of his greatest plays – Othello and King Lear. Not withstanding its timeline, limerick remains an original form of poetry and is loved for its sheer value of humor and brevity.

I begin with a sketch of my closest friends. Ofcourse I am not going to use any names here but the beauty of a limerick is such that each one of them will make out which one is for him/her.

Like I said it is a fun exercise:

The boy who lived on a hill
Used to be such joy and thrill
Suddenly vanished in thin air
To lay all girls blonde and fair
Was it some country skill?

Tarkan came from the riverside
and he was no Jekyll and Hyde
Though he had a naughty heart
Girls took him for a pastry cart
For he kept them ever supplied
