    For WAM

    Old Mozart was a man with a tune
    with opera and sonatas to his boon
    his friendships were vast
    according to the past
    he loved best to howl at the moon

    There was a bald prophet named Buddha
    Who picnicked upon Brie and Gouda.
    He tried a banana
    And entered Nirvana
    But still holidays in Bermuda.
    And this from a man in a bunny suit.

    There once was a fellow named Benny
    who would not let his wife spend a penny.
    One day this did break her
    so she ran off with the Baker
    and left him no dough, no, not any.

    Aw, thanks, Dreamwoven!
    I was trying to add the 'clever touch' to it, like our Bum here. He always has a humorous twist to his.

    Thank you, kiz, and yes, that's a great Limerick. The multiple internal rhyme in the last line gives the whole thing a musical/comical sound that keeps the subject in good fun. Writing about painful subjects in a way that makes people laugh (without giving way to cynicism) is a real gift. Well done!

    There was a fine lady named Kiz
    Who knew well her poetry biz.
    She could dash off inimitable
    Poetic airs Lymerickal
    With dizzying, sizzling, fizz!
    And this from a man in a bunny suit.

    This Day in History

    Five hundred years gone our boy Martin
    Sent Catholics and Protestants partin'.
    He nailed up his theses;
    The Pope, he cried: "Feces!"
    And bloodshed, alas, was soon startin'.
    And this from a man in a bunny suit.

    Well, hardly, but thanks.

    There are a few stars, Cassiopeia:
    A lady, I think, in a chee-ah.*
    Or perhaps she's a swan
    Who has sat there too long.
    I could never quite tell. Well then, see ya!

    You can’t be Sirius!

    Out at sea was a young Hawaiian
    Desperately lost but still a-tryin’
    He’d left yesterday
    In currents westerly
    Then fixed east by spotting Orion
    Some people call me Maurice
    'Cos I speak of the pompatus of love

    Sancho! I was just hoping you would find us again!

    There once was a fellow named Sancho:
    A LitNetter limerick head honcho.
    He'd written the rhymes
    Since atiguhya's times.
    I'm not fit to hold the man's poncho.
