Let's Write a Limerick!

A limerick has 5 lines with an AABBA. I'll start a limerick and you add the last line. Then you write one and let the next person write the last line, ok?

Once upon a Christmas Eve
A cat had mischief up her sleeve!
She climbed up the tree;
How naughty was she!


(Line five should have the same number of beats as lines 1 and 2, and should rhyme with them also! For those of you who never wrote a limerick!)

When the tree fell how she did grieve!

The kitty jumped across the stream
Unpleasant getting wet did seem.
But a big trout splashed,
So away she dashed!

(Kind of spur of the moment, but I hope this game catches on better than BC's animal couplets one.)

(I missed the couplets, I'm sorry to say! We should revive them.)

Ok, who's going to finish Jessica's limerick?

I will!

The kitty jumped across the stream
Unpleasant getting wet did seem.
But a big trout splashed,
So away she dashed!
Hoping all had been a bad dream! (Thanks, Amber)


There once was a kitty named Punky,
Who considered himself quite spunky.
He grabbed Elly's tail,
And oh, did she wail!

(Jeanie, you didn't finish the limerick!)

And oh, did she wail!
An' climbed up the wall like a monkey!

Mine:

To Kitten, all is a wonder,
But this time Kitten did blunder.
Now Kitten's all wet
And rather upset

Her world had been torn asunder

A kitty climbed the castle stairs
An eerie feeling raised her hairs.
There came a loud thump
And how she did jump!

Jeanie - you should revive BC's couplet game! Here's the link:

Poor kitty was caught unawares!

I know of a tabby called Jake
Who spends more time asleep than awake
With his head on his paws
All we hear are his snores

When it comes time to play he's a flake!

There once was a kitty named Jack
Who prefered to lay on his back
When rubbing his belly
He'd turn all to jelly

For purring, he had quite a knack!

A kitty named Yoda preferred
To sleep with the china-absurd!
But his friends he did call,
And sleep did they all

As if he'd had heart attack.

There was a wee cat up a tree
Who never came in for it's tea
It came 9 'o clock
Was nowhere on the block
