Readings For Wednesday April 3rd

Hi everyone, my presentation will be on limericks so please take a look at the YouTube video and some of the examples that I have posted. Thanks!

Limerick by Edward Lear

There was an Old Man with a beard,

Who said, ‘It is just as I feared!

Two Owls and a Hen,

Four Larks and a Wren,

Have all built their nests in my beard!’


Limerick by Dixon Merritt

A wonderful bird is the pelican

His bill can hold more than his belican

He can take in his beak

Food enough for a week

But I’m damned if I see how the helican

Limerick by Salman Rushdie

The marriage of poor Kim Kardashian

Was krushed like a kar in a krashian.

Her Kris kried, “Not fair!

Why kan’t I keep my share?”

But Kardashian fell klean outa fashian.

Limerick by John Clark

There was an old man with a beard,

A funny old man with a beard

He had a big beard

A great big old beard

That amusing old man with a beard.

  1. If you feel like it, you can also check out the limericks T. S. Eliot wrote before he became a “serious” poet. They’ve been published recently in a book called Inventions of the March Hare.
