Privy Call

So here's a who's who is the Zoo,
Sue the snake petter, that's who,
She was hugged by the Boa Constrictor,
Who could eat her but only licked her,
And scared it out of her in the loo.

Walkin' the Dog

I walked my dog down by the junction
When he had a canine malfunction
He jumped on a snake
A bite he did take
And now he has reptile dysfunction.

The Trouser Snake

There once was a king cobra called Lance,
Who heard music and went in a trance.
People thought he was asleep,
As his thoughts were so deep.
Then he reared up and lunged for their pants.

Life In a Liquor Bottle

He dives into a liquor bottle, and
Zigzags like a snake on the sand.
A wife waits for her hero,
But who comes as a zero.
Obscenities ooze from his ‘stupor gland’.

Snake Bit

There once was a banker from Britain

Who sat on a snake and was bitten

    But his assets were apprised

    To have quadrupled in size

While attending nurses were smitten!

The Mongoose

There was a mongoose by a lake,
Who vowed, ‘No more cookies and cake.’
And he later confessed,
(If you haven’t all guessed):
‘…because it’s the year of the snake…’

For a week Jean was married to Jake,
Jean discovered that Jake was a snake,
At a shop now in town,
For sale a wedding gown,
With a note - worn once by mistake.

Backyard Remedy

After booking for a consul-tation,
The doctor prescribed medi-cation,
But when I stood on a rake,
Then stepped back on a snake;
That’s what cured my consti-pation.

The Bull Snake crawled into my shed
used an old Sparrow nest for his bed
through the door then came I
and we met eye to eye,
I must not repeat what I said!

Door-To-Door Snake Oil Salesmen

"Let's spread the word of the Lord!" they exclaimed
"Knocking on doors - surely none could be blamed!"
   It's simply a matter of time
   Up the walls we will climb
Our inevitable ire will thus be inflamed

With Eve whom he always called Madam

Unlucky Snake

Unlucky snake

A slippery fellow named mandrake

From the zoo made a swift prison break

But a redback named Crunch

Had him for lunch

Down here our spiders eat snake.

A Novel Use For a Plumber's Snake

Pa hankered cheeses of every kind.

   Alas, it placed him in a painful bind!

      "For fast relief", said his wife,

         "Plumber's snakes should ease yer strife!"

            "No thanks!  I'll use Ex-Lax for my behind!"

Meet Brad the snake, he lived in woodlands.
He loved to make music in rock bands.
Singing so strong and loud,
Hissing, wiggling so proud.
Now how did he hold mike, without hands.

Pet Friendless Pub

I took my pet to the local pub,
Bar-keep called me a flamin' grub,
You can't bring a snake in here
It'll put people off their beer,
He chased poor Horace with a club.

A snake in the grass is a nasty old soul Their modus operandi means a meal is their goal Not all snakes A meal to make But nine out of ten will swallow your ass whole

Herpetologist Christopher Blake
Made a perfectly dreadful mistake:
Turned his back upon Wanda,
An immense anaconda,
And became a quick snack for the snake.

What To Do!

There was an old cow who said, "Moo!"
She wanted to live in a zoo!
   She feared a long snake.
   Who said she'd make a great steak!
Now what's a poor moo cow to do?

Stinking Snake

A man tossed a snake in a lake
to the bottom I thank, that It sank 
and it sit there awhile 
with a big fang smile
cause it needed a bath; for it stank!

Why you look at me with a snake eyed stare
The limericks is to entice laughter, I swear
Don’t take it to heart 
You’ll be a miserable old fart 
Warning, eating food and limericks, beware.

Snake and the Poet

There once was an old poet who gardened Until she found something bad there hardened A rattlesnake with raised fangs Eye to eye combat with gangs Snake go to the woods for you are pardoned
