Prostitution limericks

A courtesan from the streets of Beijing
was tutored and cultured to sing
but trying her luck
she still had to f**k
her teachers for making a living.

In York a madam named Ellen
was trading in “bushes and melons”
but not selling caprice
to a wanton police
closed her shop and made her a felon.

There once was a man from Kilkenny
who one night met a lady named Jenny
for her he was keen
but she wasn’t green
so with a smile he spent every penny.

  1. Ha. You’re a riot. My favorite parts are the endings of the first and third stanzas, and “trading in ‘bushes and melons’.” Very funny.

    P.S. That picture is hideous. 😛

  2. The Limerick is probably my favorite set form of poetry. So tempting and easy! to write naughty ones… 😮 I make it a point to steer clear, but I chuckled at yours. They’re the first I’ve seen, so tickled to hear it’s at dVerse today! 😀

  3. You excel in the naughty aspects of limericks–much to our enjoyment, Limericks were perhaps the first poetry I encountered, & I wrote some whoppers at 12 years old.

  4. Well, I’m right properly shocked. And here I restrained from using my favorite naughty about the days of old when knights were bold… The limericks are hilarious, the photo disgusting.

  5. I’m hopeless at limericks. I can’t seem to go in a bawdy direction and I know that is, pretty much, a requirement … a requirement that, I have to say, you’ve nailed, here. Smiles.

  6. Great limericks, Björn! But my biggest laugh came when I read the name of the artist below the painting. Surely there is a poem awaiting there.

I try to reciprocate all comments. If you want me to visit a particular post, please direct me directly to that post.
