Abominable Limericks

Abominable Limericks

A Poem by barleygirl
"

Dave Brown tripped my limerick switch . . .

"

Deep in a leech-infested swatch
I stumbled on a spotted Sasquatch
spouting green slime
he croaked: it’s time
before busting a bite from my crotch.

A fierce female Yeti prowls Big Sur
her slop shanty is “Incense & Myrrh”
if you're down her way
along the coast highway
stop for bigfoot fricassee & reefer.

Here we got redwoods not hemlocks
our Sasquatch dons boxers, not socks
if my hip’s in a kink
he’ll pour me a drink
before he busts open his toolbox.

Wish I’d pursued a passing pongo
in deep woods fringing my mongo
with a backdrop sunset
an Abominable duet
blown away by the bulk of his bongo.

Just a poet with a limerick passion
an artform that’s way out of fashion
a glimpse of Sasquatch
is my chug of cheap scotch
possessed to pen a raunchy ration.

It's impossible for me to read a limerick & not need to write some.

two great words that you don't hear very often - abominable and sasquatch. where's bigfoot when you need him? my uncle from the back woods of maine used to call certain people sasquatch. you've certainly traced his footsteps with lots of innuendo. you know i'm partial to this format of write so what's not to like ... :)

See, the thing is when one reads a limerick and then writes one, you spread the need for others who read. And now I think I should try. Lol, this was great : ) I'm glad Richard recommended you.

This set of limericks, is pure fun, wit and a lovely dash of raunch! I could picture the Sasquatch and his big bong and all the hot action possibilities well lol. Limericks may be a bit obsolete but they remain fun as ever and a welcome break from our the regular poetry. Thanks for the laughs and winks today.

A barleygirl wrote of Sasquatch
So clever I had to watch
She broke into rhyme
Didn't cost me a dime
To read of her reference of crotch

Much love.

Finding a rhyme for 'sasquatch' is a brilliant effort in itself, almost as hard as finding said sasquatch! So very well done in that regard! The sasquatch is such an intriguing myth that I really do hope that it exists, though I guess if you looked around the cities hard enough you'll see enough abominable men as it is! A very fun read, Margie! :))

I think I spotted a Margie...
but she moves so fast, her pen is there and then it isn't...
I tried to capture her in a photo, but her roar in limerick velocity shattered my lens.
So I went home defeated and cooked my cornish hens.
I know they are real.

Never offer your mongo to someone who can scratch his ankles without bending his knees. Especially if he's eight feet tall. You might end up getting impaled.
