Spooky Limericks!


A bold constable patrolled alone one night
Upon a man sitting on a grave, fell his sight
‘Why here? He asked in whim
“Actually it’s too hot within!!”
The constable, all pale, just ran and ran in fright!




Once a boy longed to visit the high hillside
“Never, it’s haunted” his mother did chide
Still he went, and saw a man too lost
Boy asked “does here roam a ghost?”
Said he “How would I know? A decade back I died!


A 'limerick' is a style of poetry, with five lines and a strict rhyme scheme AABBA. These poems generally have a humorous intent. The first, second and fifth lines are usually longer than the third and fourth.

  1. Wonderful! And the image reminds me fondly of my childhood days...Casper the friendly ghost and his ghostly trio. :)
