Just Doesn'T Add Up

Pythagoras once fell off a ladder
And landed on a venomous adder
This adder couldn't add
Calculus made it sad
Algebra and theorems made it madder.

Broken Hearted - Jtap

Our friendship here had only just started
then you left me alone, broken hearted
you're gone but not forgotten
now life it seems so rotten
ever since the sad day you departed.

We miss you, Chan :)

This was my sadder take on the "poet who broke my heart" contest theme.

Slams Destroyed Her Head

Slams Destroyed Her Head

She was slammed by slam poetry, boo hoo!
Some folks wondered about the hullabaloo.
When bombarded with dread,
Sad thoughts destroyed her head.
Now, she thinks she’s a blithering cuckoo!

P.D. Bye

There’s a peach of a girl named P.D.
Who is a friend of both you and me
She’s gone away
I already miss her today
Her kind words and Queen Slam poetry

*If you find another sad limerick let me know*

There's a gal known as Karma; she'll charm ya,

and folks, I don't want to alarm ya,

but do somebody wrong,

and you'll sing a sad song

'cause she'll hunt ya down; then she'll harm ya!

Jan's Are the Best

Funny limericks are a welcomed treat
They're comic relief that can't be beat
Jan's limericks are the best
Never dull, I will attest
Reading them makes my sad, sour days more sweet

I Won'T Try Again I Quit

I’m done I say, I’m mad and sad.
The ones that won were rather bad
I won’t try again
Sponsor rigged the win
I always knew he was a cad

A Place In the Sun

Sunflower has a smiling face,
When planted in a sunny place,
Those planted in the shade
Soon look miserable and fade
Sad because they are misplaced.

Survival of the Fittest

Watched a nature program about Africa last night And the animals that roam free what a glorious sight Survival of the fittest Can make us grimace As the prey succumbs in a fight for their life Hard to watch!!! © Jack Ellison 2015

Death Is Good

Oh give me a rope
With a noose that is loose 
And i'll tie it up on a beam

Then give me a pill
That will give me a thrill 
And i'll end it all on a high

Death Death is the way 
For life is to sucky to play

So give me a gun
That is loaded for fun
And i'll blow my brains far away.

Manto Blame

In the beginning, when man became-
Murder and death seemed a fun game.
This was not what God meant
When giving us consent-
To our own choice, only man is to blame.

February Funnybone -Limerick

February arrives and it's glad
makes the other months look kinda sad
hearts and love it stands for
romance, flowers what’s more
for only twenty nine days that's not bad.

Retired Ram

There once was a ram who retired,
who really was terribly tired.
Having serviced the lot,
he should have have been shot.
But the gun thankfully backfired.

were boogieing it down
on the neck of an aristocrat
When suddenly Splat

Jack's Harem

Day one without our lim'rick dad
It's cloudy and I feel quite sad
I sneak in his room
Try on his perfume
and call his harem to come to his pad

aged wings with fairy sound

swirling colors gather round

glide without care

past our sad stare

final rest upon the ground.

Spinster Sue

A shy, young spinster, named Sue,

felt sad, cause her lovers were few!

        So, she walked out the door,

        wearing a fig-leaf - no more!

Now, she's in bed.with the flu!

Ah, If Columbus

Ah, If Columbus had not sailed
for America: the new land,
cigarettes wouldn't kill
those feeling the chill...
many would be alive, not dead!

Why I Don'T Like Slam

Excuse me please, pardon me, thank you ma’am.
Hold the door, turn the cheek, that’s who I am.
Facetiousness, so sad,
By any name is bad.
Hateful pretense is why I’m against slam.
