Limerick Challenge Week 25: Humor

Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far; I have been super busy working on too many things at the same time. I have exciting news to share with all you, but not now, hopefully sometime soon! I apologize for the delay in posting this week’s limerick challenge, thanks to a severe thunderstorm with strong winds (and a tornado warning) we had internet outage all of this Friday and half the day on Saturday!

Anyway, without further ado, let’s look at the Top 5 limericks from Week.

If you have not already, click here, to view all the limerick submissions for Week 24.

And the limerick superstar of this week………….*drumrolls please* Modern Woman by Image & Word

Once upon a time not long ago

A Princess told her Prince where to go

Tired of fairy-tale stuff

She said ‘I’ve had enough

Of this macho-man bullshit you know!’


Congratulations to Image & Word– the Limerick Superstar of the week!

The next two top limericks on my list are Magarisa of Becoming Unstuck and Ranu of Sabethville

Followed by Mahared Wynn and Frank of Poetry, Short Prose and Walking.

Now that the Top 5 limericks have been announced, let us move on to the Week 25 Challenge.

The prompt for this week’s challenge is ‘Humor’ this means that your limerick should be humorous. Write the limerick in any way you did like so long as it tells a humorous/funny story.

For those who are new to the challenge, here are the rules:

  1. Each week, a prompt theme will be provided and participants are to use this prompt as a base for their limericks.
  2. This challenge will run from Friday to Friday, and you may link up your Limerick anytime during these specific days.
  3. All Limericks for Week 25 Challenge are due in latest by 5PM EST on Saturday, June 25, 2016. After the deadline, the link-up button will not accept any more submissions.
  4. Please tag your Limerick with Limerick Poetry Challenge so that others interested can check out your Limerick.
  5. Please remember to pingback to this post on your Limerick Post and also to link it up.
  6. A small donation is made to the local charity in the name of the Winners who receives the ‘Limerick Superstar’ badge.
  7. Receiving this badge means that not only are you a Limerick Superstar, you helped feed one hungry person with your limerick! The winners can choose to display the badge on their blogs!
  8. If you are interested in participating in this challenge, please follow this blog site to receive instant email notifications of the post with the Word prompts for each week.

Finally, here is my take on the prompt:

This time, I am really keen

Over a week, to keep this house clean

When from one side I start

 The other side falls apart

OK, for this, I need more caffeine!

  8. Such a wonderful limerick about cleaning your home,
    though I don’t know what makes a great poem,
    when you mention coffee, caffeine or latte,
    it brings a huge joy into my day.

  9. It is an interesting problem that you mentioned in your limerick of how to get motivated to clean the house. What motivates me is to find out that one of my relatives who doesn’t stop by often is planning to visit.

    • My problem is mainly about keeping it clean after I finish cleaning! While I clean from one side , my son starts messing up from the other! 😀
      Having visitors is definitely a reason to start cleaning the house!

  11. Dear Rashmi,
    Many thanks for the Second Place. The prompt, “Once Upon A Time,” took me back to my teaching days and the little kid, who was so concerned about me falling on the ice. This was one of my most precious memories. 🙂
