A Limerick for every occasion

It’s over. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing; or for that matter, a good thing either. It’s just simply…over.

There is so much that I could say about Thanksgiving this year, but I thought maybe I’d try and mix it up a bit.

Therefore, I hereby present, my Thanksgiving Limericks:

At my house here we held our Thanksgiving
Celebrated with joy by the living
Though some of us slept
While the rest of us swept
When the gym opened back up, I was driven!

My mom has forgotten that small boys
Will fight over food, space and small toys
When I yell, “Hey you guys STOP!”
She says, “What up there pop?
Your yelling just adds on to their noise!”

There isn’t enough hard alcohol
Stored there in the wet bar in the hall
To keep me from wishin
That my mom would stop bitchin
About the supposed economic downfall


When the toddler is down for his long nap
Why can’t you all shut up your trap?
And stop stomping around
Like you own this here ground
Oh Lord help me put up with this crap!

Though I make fun, we really had a very good Thanksgiving. I don’t publicly thank God for my blessings too often, but I do give him all the glory and praise for what I’ve been blessed with. I hope he understands that, at times like these, I’m mostly just having a good time. I’m not really this uptight. I think God has a sense of humor too.

  1. “I think God has a sense of humor too.”

    I could not agree with you more!!

    Although, I gotta wonder about your Thanksgiving… It sounded sort of “stressful”. Well, at least you made it out the other side!! I for one am glad you did!

    Now, just short of 4 more weeks to go – and things can return to normality.

    P.S. Ever consider publishing a book of Limericks?? (grin)

    RE: I’ve thought about publishing a LOT of different kinds of books and perhaps the only thing keeping me from doing it, is the fact that I don’t want to ruin my stellar reputation as a good Christian Boy!
    HA HA!

  2. One of the things I’m most grateful for it that I only have one Thanksgiving a year to get through. The last two have been humdingers!

    Thank goodness we don’t celebrate Festivus. The part about the Airing of Grievances would take too long! 😆

    RE: Ugh I know! Honestly, two days with most folks is PLENTY! I can only put forth so much effort for so long before just throwing my hands up in the air and saying, “Forget it!”

  3. I am with you, thinking that God has a sense of humor. Otherwise, what could explain my nose? Or the fact that I can’t stand being inside, but I am allergic to everything outside.

    Funny jokes on me, alright!

    RE: You could become “Bubble Boy” and live outside in a tent! Oh that was a good Seinfeld one! Big thanks to TrishaTruly for reminding me of Festivus and all that entails!
