Limerick Collection

I met lovely Amy online
And we've always got along fine.
She home schools her four -
I'm simply in awe -
I don't think I'd like to teach mine!

Steve's helpful and friendly- it's true.
In the midst of the hullabaloo,
He'll be playing Just Dance
If you give him a chance,
But directions? Nope, not a clue!

He leaves heartening words to be read,
Often written when I am in bed.
With whimsy unlimited
(When he's uninhibited),
The author? My dear Galenred!

There once was a woman from Italy
Who worked at the crossword quite grittily.
She worked out the anagram
While stuck in a traffic jam,
Then filled in the squares very wittily.

Laura Jane
I went for a walk down the lane
With my US friend called Laura Jane.
There was so much laughter
(I'm not sure who was dafter!) -
I can't wait to do it again!

I have a good friend called Marie;
An artist from ol' Tennessee.
She has hobbies galore;
Sewing, painting and more;
And she once drew a picture for me!

One day, my great friend called Rebecca
Got onto a red double decker.
Though making for Bury,
It travelled to Derry -
The driver forgot his spell checker.

My long-time friend Mr R. Nash
Was invited to a birthday bash.
He didn't get far -
he'd left his guitar!
But retrieved it as quick as a flash.

There once was a woman called Gina
Whose laugh sounded like a hyena.
Her kids found this funny
And made lots of money
Selling tickets for Wembley Arena!

Just a bit of fun. I wrote one for every friend that requested one.
