Now, as I recall, a limerick should have an element of naughtiness to it...

A Myth Jellies Original

A frustrated woman from Madrid
Had a husband who sudoku'd in bed
She applied to her parts
A tattooist's arts
Now she's happy he fills in her grid!

These were inspired by Myth Jellies' approach.:)

There was a young man from Qatar
Who hooked up with a girl in a bar
As his goal was approaching
She gave him reproaching
Looks for going too far


A lovely young lady from Cochin
Was deceived by a man who had no chin
She saw him receding,
Assumed he was leaving,
But actually, he was approachin’

A shy young lass from Duntocher
Needed a tutor to coach her
A young man applied
His credentials were wide
She nearly died when he tried to approach her

Ah, very nice, emm. Here's one inspired by the MJ1 riddle responses.

A winsome young waif from St. Charles
Loved a bod that was built to lift barbells
David's form: it was mythic
Though he was a bit lithic
Still she couldn't help playing with his marbles

Nice. I can forgive a little lapse in the anapest when the imagery’s good!:D

Hope my image works for you!

Image

A girl who was travelling by coach
Choked when she swallowed a roach
It hopped in her maw
At the height of a snore
And perfectly timed its approach


I’m working my way through all the approach-rhyming words in the English language. There are only a few to go.:D

A variation

A girl who was travelling by coach
Choked when she swallowed a roach
She tried over-infusion
To boost the illusion -
But over-suck blew the approach

How about:

Brooch and Poach and Broach
Or Encroach and Reproach.
A luxurious carriage: the Caroche
For those of surnames: Doetsch
Goetsch, Roache or Roche.

The ooch you see in brooch
Is not pronounced ooch, but oach
What's the purpose
Of a surplus
Brooch, when we already have broach?

Brooch n. an ornament fastened to clothing with a hinged pin.

Broach v. & n. - v.tr. 1 raise (a subject) for discussion. 2 piece (a cask) to draw liquor. 3 open and start using the contents of (a box, bale, bottle, etc.) 4 begin drawing (liquor). - n. 1 a bit for boring. 2 a roasting spit.

They're both pronounced the same.


Emm broached the subject of brooches
Armeggedon, she cried, approaches,
For they are the same
Under a different name
For that, to me, she reproaches.

You are advised not to encroach
On the erogenous zones of a loach
These places are barbels
They’re loachy-type marvels
That only a loach should approach


PS: This is bona fide zoological information I’m giving you - the sensory organs of a loach are called barbels - which is a curiously nice loop don’t you think?

The erogenous zone of a loach
Is a curious subject to broach
With its barbels aquiver
Does it consider
The snatch or the c&j approach?


PS: Snatch and clean-and-jerk are bona fide weightlifting moves.

A loach I had was a clown
He took to fooling around
Not with the snatch or cee & jay
but with "the females", he'd say
"They more fun to be with, I found".



Clown Loach
Scientific Name: Botia macracanthus
