Coyote Breath Folklore: Limericks...know any good ones [15] (76* d) RE: BS: Limericks...know any good ones 06 Sep 05


Gothic ehh?

A foolish young woman named Gwen
Was of seen with the 'wrong kind of men'
She vanished one day
And the following May
Her legs were retrieved from a fen.

or

The disection of Vavasour Scowles
Was a sickener; they came on his bowles
In a firken; his brain
was found Clogging a drain
and his toes were done up in some towels.

The above were written by Edward Gorey who pens the most exquisite gothic limericks with delicious illustrations to match. I'd write more but my children have stolen all my Edward Gorey books and those were the only ones I could remember.
