CCCIV - Wedding Plans

.Mad Kane has a regular limerick challenge.
She provides the first line, the rest is up to us.

Wedding Plans

A woman was instructed to wed
By her father who wanted, ‘twas said,
To strengthen the strands
That bound neighbouring clans;
A prospect that filled her with dread.


A fellow was planning to wed
And dreamed the first night in his bed.
But it was all in vain,
As she had a migraine,
So he had a cold shower instead.


A sovereign was planning to wed
He’d done it several times, it was said.
Each of his wives
Had had truncated lives
As they left him, minus their head.


A fellow was planning to wed
A lady, a true thoroughbred.
In the hay, in the stable,
She showed she was able
To be mounted and ridden and led.

  1. I love these! The last two are my favorites!!

  2. Hilarious Cosmo, all of them! I like Henry VIII and they 'all lost their heads' Anne Boleyn and all!


  3. LOL! What a fun quartet of limericks. Thanks so much for participating in my Limerick-Offs!

  4. J. Cosmo. - you have the words! Very clever!! My Great Uncle John from England was just like you in that regard - could make clever rhymes up on the spot. Alas, I can barely spell rime/ryiem/rhy...

  5. All four are very clever dear J Cosmo, I especially like your limerick regarding Henry VIII.

You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
