limerick challenge #17


A smiling jaguar (as imagined by a four-year-old).

Over at Mumturnedmom this week The Prompt is one word: Brief. A single glance at this gave me the nudge I needed to write another limerick (limericks being brief y’see).

I went through a phase a while back of writing one every week - my sons would choose the theme, I would write a limerick and they would illustrate it – but I haven’t written one for a while. The boys have been asking me to write about a jaguar recently, so yesterday I finally got round to it:


A vocally talented jaguar

With a popular musical repertoire

Performed with perfection

Hits by One Direction

And soon was renowned as a superstar.

The boys were thrilled by the One Direction reference – they dance around the kitchen singing their songs a lot!

All together now: “You don’t know you’re beautiful…”
