Queen’s Tuesday Meme – Sheer Poetry

Posted on September 22, 2009. Filed under: Meme Fun |

Here is my Tuesday challenge from Mimi……

This week the questions are sheer poetry. Nonsensical. Cerebral. Challenging. The answers should be too.
I have given you seven familiar limericks. Your job is to change them by filling in the blanks.  

1.There was an Old Man of …….Great Age,
Who lived upon …….minimum wage;
When that did not ….. cut it,
He took ….. a work permit,
That nasty Old Man of …….. the cage.

2. There was a Young Lady whose ….. shoes,
Were unique as to color and …. blues
When she opened them …… slowly,
People all turned ……. wholly
And started away in …..twos

 

3. There was a Young Lady of ….. repute
Who casually sat on a  ……..lute

When the door squeezed her….. jump suit

She exclaimed, ‘….. dried fruit?’
This courageous Young Lady of …repute

 

4.There was an Old Man with a ….bottle
Who bumped at it with a …….throttle

But they called out,…… ‘stop!
You’re a horrid old ……sop!’
So they smashed that Old Man with a…. top.

5. There was a Young Lady whose….. roast,
Came untied when the birds ate ……most

But she said: ‘I don’t …..care!
All the birds in the ….air

Are welcome to sit on my ……coast!’

 

6. There was an Old Man of …..merlot,
Who never knew what he should…… grow
So he tore off his ……tie
And behaved like a ….guy

That intrinsic Old Man of …..cointreau

 

There was an Old Man of …..Pembrook
Who had the most curious…… book
For while he was …..reader,
He slept on a …..cedar,
That funny Old Man of Pembrook.

Your answers were great!

There was a ‘young’ girl from the banks
Who wrote a blog with no blanks
People came to read
And complimented thee
To that she said many thanks!
