limerick challenge #21

purple unicorn
My last post was on a heart-wrenching subject so I felt in need of something lighthearted… time for another limerick challenge! This time I wrote about a unicorn. My sons provided the inspiration and illustrations as always. The black-winged, purple unicorn is by my five-year old and the distinctly dragon-y one below was carefully drawn by his big brother (aged seven).

As usual, please forgive bad rhymes and general ridiculousness!


There once was a job-seeking unicorn

Who filled in a flight-staff recruitment form

But aeroplane seats

Don’t fit mythical beasts

And the poor thing looked daft in the uniform!

      Thanks Carol – a particularly ridiculous limerick I thought, but hang on, they’re all ridiculous really aren’t they?! Thanks for hosting #www

      Thanks Victoria! That’s been suggested to me a few times now – am really starting to wonder if I should do it! Thanks for hosting xx
