LIMERICKS 4 5 & 6

 

An aspiring young jockey called Morse

was longing to ride round the course

‘How can it be done?’

he asked his bright son.

‘On a long-tailed, long legged, well bred, black Arabian horse, of course!’

 

 

 

There was an old man called Rose

who wore a large peg on his nose.

Whenever asked ‘Why?’

He would always reply:

‘It’s convenient for hanging out clothes’.

 

 

 

 

There was a young man from Eccles

who was covered all over in freckles.

Said the King to the Queen

‘Tis a thing seldom seen,

except in the streets around Eccles’.
