Green was the print/Seen on the mint/ Keen was the scent/ Teen on the hint of mischief this St. Paddy's Day!

He started off a slave and not very brave,
A flock he tended and faith was extended,
legend tells of the snakes great fate and clover new weight
but who knows of feasts we give for his sake?

A once overweight man who was northbound
Eventually became deeply snowbound
Long deprived of his dinner, now decidely thinner,
This underweight man who was northbound

A gay man I knew in Khartoum
Took a lesbian up to his room.
They stayed up all night
Arguing who had the right
To do what and with which and to whom.

Thanks for these limericks. I'm curious, are these original ones written by you?

I heard mine a long time ago, though the first line was originally less politically correct.

Mine was original, a little March madness...the following is from The Secret Gift by Ted Gup. Question not but live and labor

Question not but live and labor / Till your goal be won / Helping every feeble neighbor / Seeking help from none / Life is mostly froth and bubble / Two things stand like stone / Kindness in another's trouble / Courage in your own.

There was a kind curate of Kew,
Who kept a large cat in a pew;
There he taught it each week
A new letter of Greek,
But it never got further than "Mu."

There was a young lady of Bright/ Whose speed was much faster than light/ She set out one day/ in a relative way/ And returned home the previous night.

Christmas clues, hints, and secrets/ Make one a spy on an elusive mission/ the perfect gift an ideal goal-who will know if you'll prevail.../ the elf who winked? the reindeer linked to the stars? the snowman who blinks and laughs at the weather? / Have some eggnog and relax/ Only Santa and you will know in the end. Merry Christmas!
