Bored Limericks

I took part in another of Mad Kane's Limerick Off Mondays
and received an Honorable Mention!

The RULES: She writes a limerick and you write your own, using the same first line, though the winners seem to change them leaving the last word only: A woman felt terribly bored…* or A gal on a corporate board…* or A fellow who slept on a board….or A youngster complained he was bored…or A fellow was cutting a board…*   or An animal burrowed and bored…*
Then you post your limerick on her blog or if you’re a Facebook user, on Facebook too
The best submission gets crowned Limerick Of The Week or an Honorable mention!


Here's my two entries:




A woman felt terribly bored
By each conquest she entered and scored
On a scale one to ten
She would judge all her men
With a zero for any who snored!
A youngster complained he was bored
Though the cost of his living had soared
With his gizmos piled high
His mum prayed to the sky
That her offspring were exiled abroad.

  3. A woman felt terribly bored
    of her books all being ignored
    they didn't sell
    till the kiss and tell
    of her affair with a certain young lord.
