Limericks were used in Nursery Rhymes and other poems for children. Limericks have been traced back to the fourteenth century English history. The word Limerick comes from the Irish town of Limerick.  The content of Limericks is often bawdy and humorous.  A Limerick as poetry is simple and short, as Limericks only have five lines.  The theme of our Limericks is “People”.

who lived in a beautiful shell

she once went to Tom

when a crab stole her home

so homeless was left, the poor girl!

Who weighed one hundred and thirty

He was like a balloon

and he flew to the moon

where he lost weight and weighed only thirty.

it's secrets cannot be unlocked

it touches the crowd

and all of them rockers are called.

who drove all the teachers crazy

His homework undone

but his big love was beautiful Daisy.
