    An ECC commissioner called Delors,
    Was out for a walk on the moors.
    He was feeling quite fey,
    Till he bumped into May,
    Who had him ensconced in the Tower.

    Her Majesty's Pleasure,
    Was not for this fella,
    His demeanour grew wilted and grey.
    He misread Englands stance,
    On the Brexit advance,
    Now addressed by his jailer as "Flower!"

    ( Whoops. Does not quite gel. But "une point" for trying.)

    Circle of life

    ^Ha! Close enough for government work, eh?

    Yesterday the turkey was roasting
    And family at the house hosting
    Now we’re off to the mall
    Then a little football
    With the meal in the tank composting
    Some people call me Maurice
    'Cos I speak of the pompatus of love

    Creepin' While You're Sleepin'

    A spider once started to covet
    So he crept up to little Miss Muffet.
    Her tuffet looked fine
    So he slipped up behind.
    Al Franken's the name of that dumbsh*t.
    And this from a man in a bunny suit.

    So the senator’s a little handsy
    May have thought himself manly
    But he was confused
    The lady accused
    And I always thought he’s a pansy
    Some people call me Maurice
    'Cos I speak of the pompatus of love

    Limericks are easy in a language where just about every word ends in an A or a O

    I once knew a señorita
    And she was muy bonita
    Laughed at my jokes
    No need to coax
    Now she’s my mejor amiga

    Whither Rhyme Leadeth

    There once was a bird called the Dodo
    That perished sans even a photo.
    The Lord of the Rings
    I'll evoke of all things
    Since the only rhyme now I've got's "Frodo."

    (And thanks, kiz).

    Added: Just read the above, Sancho. Brilliant. Limericks are supposed to be easy. Go with what works.

    Wenner never had a muse

    There once was a fellow named Wenner
    Who fancied himself a fine tenor
    He sang while he talked
    And danced while he walked
    But musically was a bit off-center

    So what you are saying is that our Wenner was a legend in his own mind? LoL!

    Not to worry. In poetic terms, that's known as a kiz pause.

    The Dawn of Bird

    A dinosaur called archaeopteryx
    Spread wings and from tree to tree hopped for kicks.
    In fields of green fern
    It no doubt caught the worm
    Because that's in an early bird's bad o'tricks.

    Who else, but our dear PB would attempt to perform a limerick on an archaeopteryx...

    Thanks, kiz.

    Ancient Debate Resolved

    There once was a burly, brown bruin
    Who brought expectations to ruin.
    He left his wild wood,
    And when asked why he should,
    Replied, "Mister, in there I ain't pooin'!"

    So our question is the Woods and the Bear
    and whether or not he squats there
    They say it's a given
    so I guess we'll forgive him
    and take care to ne'er enter his lair
