Limericks

By Vandita Dharni

     There once lived a frisky pesky lizard,

     Who eloped with her lover in a blizzard.

     They soon caught the flu

     And sneezed an entire zoo

     Until they were beaten blue by a wizard.

My stomach inflates like bubblegum

Leaving me in a strange conundrum.

It mutters and mumbles.

 It gripes and grumbles.

Like missiles bursting in a drum.

A fly sat upon my cherry round nose

It sunk its fangs and a red lump arose

I scratched and darted

I almost looked retarded

but where it bit me, I can’t disclose.

A vagabond wore a long beard

from the Alps to places unheard

as its length and fame grew

people from all corners flew

soon he became a saint revered.
