There was a FIRE man named Robbie
Who was known for his “blow that dough” way to spend monie
Staying home all day
Made him go Limericks Crazay
And now we can only hope he is all done-ee

I picked up a snack down in Wuhan
Not bad with the grey colored Poupon
I started to cough
At first just one off
But now I'm out flat on the futon

The once was a virus from Chiner
We initially thought was minor
It got stronger each day
Much to our dismay
And it made us all stay more insider

No way. Robbie’s limericks have won our home game score so far. ***Can someone start a poll?***

Robbie is actually priceless!

We changed the meaning of quarantine.
It used to mean isolate the sick.
Now healthy people are sight unseen,
And we're longing for the way it's been.
Man, this is one bad trick.

The poets here might like the challenge of cracking the top 25 in this years limerick competition.
Though prize winners will need to read their limerick live in Ireland. Any topic.
Last years winning limerick -


While I fancy myself as a bard
Reciting a Limerick is hard
This poem’s a mouthful
My talent so doubtful
That I fear I’ll be mentally scarred

It started as a virus blitzkrieg
And filled us all with intrigue
8 straight weeks spent at home
Led to isolation syndrome
Now everyone’s got COVID fatigue

Oh no, I had a limerick earworm on my long run today -


Went foraging for food down by Wuhan
I gassed up the trusty old Poulon
Came down with a crack
Then out came my sack
Should make for some batty good bouillon

What a funny little bird a bat are
From jungle to kitchen, a tasty tartare
Tender and juicy
A tropical sushi
Now lets try camel, at the mid east bazaar

A challenge to science this corona V-2
Call it SARS not Covid whatever you do
This microscopic speck
Of genetic defect
From the wild to humans, a nasty Wuflu

Regarding research into antibodies in llamas...

There once was a gaucho named Bruno
Who said screwing is something I do know
A women is fine
A sheep is divine but
A llama is numero uno

There once was a dude name of Gates * Who was destined to rule all our fates * When covid did strike * He said 'Take a hike' * 'And I'll track you and all of your mates'. (Disclaimer : not sure if Gates is into tracking, or just vaxxing, but I can't change the rhyme now!)

To keep the covid at bay
Six feet we must all stay away
No one shall you touch
Even ones that you love very much
Alone you will be on your dying day.

She thought that she just had the flu
She didn't know quite what to do
Her taste when away
Lost her smell for a day
Turns out is was really SARS2

This COVID thing’s really a bummer
We’ve cancelled all our plans for the summer
The kids will stay home
‘round they house they will roam
And we will be certainly glummer

Under confinement, I'm starting to crack
Cabin fever has me shinning like Jack
A bland pantry meal
Has lost all appeal
And I just trimmed my hair with a vac
