National Limerick Day

Happy National Limerick Day!

Into space that is quite economical.
But the good ones I’ve seen
So seldom are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical.

There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Lamp

Who lived in a lamp,
She had no room
To beetle her champ.

And broke the lamp,
And now she has room
To beetle her champ.

There was a young lady named Bright

Who traveled much faster than light.
She started one day
In the relative way,
And returned on the previous night

There was an Old Person of Spain

by Edward Lear: A Book of Nonsense

There was an Old Person of Spain,
Who hated all trouble and pain;
So he sate on a chair with his feet in the air,
That umbrageous Old Person of Spain.

There was an Old Man of the Hague

by Edward Lear: A Book of Nonsense

There was an Old Man of the Hague,
Whose ideas were excessively vague;
He built a balloon
To examine the moon,
That deluded Old Man of the Hague.

There Was an Old Man Who Said, “Do”

There was an old man who said, “Do
Tell me how I should add two and two?
I think more and more,
That it makes about four,
But I fear that is almost too few.”
