festive limericks

I’m about to take a little blogging break over the festive period but I couldn’t go without writing a special Christmas limerick. This one ended up becoming one of my ‘story limericks‘ that spill into two verses. I haven’t shown it to my sons for fear it would ruin their view of santa…

Santa’s Special Delivery

One Christmas unlucky Saint Nick
Began to feel terribly sick
He leaned out of his sleigh
Yelled “Look out! Bombs away!
Duck for cover below me – and quick!”

He was (thankfully) over the sea
So no one got splashed with his tea
Then our dear, festive dude
Having thrown up his food
Filled our stockings up nausea-free!


Merry Christmas everyone – I hope you have a joyful, restful, wonderful time and a very Happy New Year! xxx

      I was imagining travel sickness actually but now you come to mention it, with all the sherry and brandy all those families leave out for him on Christmas eve he’s bound to feel a bit peaky isn’t he?! Thanks for commenting John.

    Haha. So he is human after all. If he even exists, that is…
    A great end to the year. It’s been an absolute pleasure doing the linky with you and reading your limericks and other stuff. Merry Christmas! xxx

    Haha! That did make me smile, but I also know how difficult it is to write in limericks, where no word or sound can be wasted
    Clever and funny!
    Have a lovely Christmas break and see you next year at #ThePrompt
