My Two Recent Birthday Limericks

For a while I was posting birthday limericks on my Facebook friends' walls.  I still do it when inspired (or requested!)

This one was for my cousin Allyson, a half-marathon runner, who was on a bike trip to San Francisco on her birthday.  She let me know she was waiting patiently for her limerick and wanted her youth and girlish figure highlighted:

To my cousin, I raise a libation:
the most youthful, slim blonde in the nation!
Though it's running she likes
she's in love with her bike:
she cannot resist the vibration!

For my aunt Al, a retired school teacher in Madison, who is spending a lot of her time at the Madison capitol building marching pro-union:

There once was a lady called Alice
who marched without venom or malice.
Demure and reserved,
(unless Tea was being served);
and then what a tempest would fell us!


  1. Hey, welcome to the Blogosphere! Nice limericks. I used to write them for friends all the time but for some reason stopped.

  2. Very nice limericks. If you're still looking for a job, send me your resume. I be Headhunter.

  3. Thank you! I will email my resume to you. What is your email address?

  4. Good afternoon Fleurdeleo,

    Good limericks. Welcome to blogging, otherwise known as your personal black hole.
