Weepy Limerick

Once again, it’s Limerick-Off time. I hope you’ll join me in writing a limerick with this first line:

A woman who readily cried…

Here’s mine. (It’s a three-verse limerick, but a standard one-verse limerick is fine, of course.)

Weepy Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A woman who readily cried
Never learned to take movies in stride.
She would feel oh so low
And her tear drops would flow
When a character sickened or died.

She’d weep for the good guys and bad—
Did not matter — they both made her sad.
How her husband freaked out
When she sobbed for a lout
Like a killer or mean, deadbeat dad.

He told her, “You’re acting insane.
Is there something amiss with your brain?
Please don’t cry for a villain
Who merits his killin’.
Put clamps on your waterworks main.”

Please feel free to write your own limerick using the same first line and post it in my comments. And if you’re on Facebook, I hope you’ll join my friends in that same activity in my Facebook Limerick-Off post.

(If you’d like to receive an email alert whenever I post a new Limerick-Off, please send me an email requesting Limerick-Off first line alerts. You’ll find my email address on the upper right sidebar, right above my photo. Thanks!)

    A woman who readily cried
    frequently heard remarks snide
    But she finally snapped
    and her nerves they were zapped
    When her eggs were served scrambled not fried!

  2. Vivek Banerjee says:

    A woman who readily cried,
    Every time she really tried.
    And down the years
    She cried bucketful of tears
    But no one cried when she died.

  3. Vivek Banerjee says:

    A woman who readily cried
    When her pet gold fish died.
    And believe me my dears
    She shed so much of tears
    The local beach had a high tide.

  4. Daisy Mae says:

    A woman who readily cried
    When chopped onions she had to provide
    For her recipe trial
    To see if worthwhile
    For a cookbook she wrote blurry eyed

  5. Shubd says:

    A woman who readily cried
    As her hair , her source of pride
    Was now a fluorescent green
    The likes of which no one had seen
    To avoid prying eyes, she now stayed inside!

  6. Sally Franz says:

    A woman who readily cried
    Had a brain that was mostly fried
    Between finances and family
    Burning both ends of the candle
    She was frayed whilst being fit to be tied

  8. Barbara in VA says:

    A woman who readily cried
    with her 8 small kids standing by
    “Who am I to say no?”
    she said nice and slow
    so the camera could catch her “good side”.

    Her hubby ran for the door
    screaming “I just can’t take it no more.
    She’s mean and she’s rude,
    She’s increasingly crude,
    For publicity she is a whore”.

    Old Katie believed she was hot
    For years she had planned out her plot
    Have a litter of kids
    Then get into “the biz”
    But talent poor Katie had not.

    So she had to pimp out her children….Sad.

    Barbara, I loved it!

  10. jesse levy says:

    A woman who readily cried
    shed tears that could never be dried
    So much did she bawl
    when shopping at the mall
    The employees would all run and hide

  11. Lilibeth says:

    A woman who readily cried,
    Was a most unforgettable bride
    Her mascara ran down
    And covered her gown
    Why was it so heavily applied?

  12. Steve Vitoff says:

    A woman who readily cried
    And in cooking took really much pride
    Said, “Starting today,
    My onion soufflé
    Is a dish my guests must be denied”

  13. Dr. Goose says:

    Said a woman who readily cried,
    “You don’t know how it hurts me inside,
    That I’ve found Mr. Right
    And he thinks I’m too tight
    When the truth is: his winky’s too wide!”

  14. Veralynne says:

    A woman who readily cried…
    Was embarrassed, wanted to hide
    When the tears flowed she ran
    To hide in her van
    Left the party and went for a ride

  15. A woman who readily cried
    didn’t bother when her husband died
    he was a brute first class
    so when he fell on his ass
    She laughed til she got a pain in her side.

  16. Josette says:

    A woman who readily cried
    Had a dog who passed gas and then sighed

    Her tears flowed like rain
    from the dogs melodious refrain
    Yet fido..simply took it in stride

    She never faced up to the fact
    Her crying was only an act

    Her dog would look on
    Pass gas..and then yawn

    Not realizing BEANO he lacked.

  17. Mark Kane says:

    A woman who readily cried,
    While eying his member quite wide,
    Fought back her hot tears,
    Ignored all her fears,
    And sighed as he climaxed inside.

  18. madkane says:

    Oh goody! More delightful limericks. Thanks everyone!

  19. Brion Emde says:

    A woman who readily cried
    Would only eat eggs that were fried
    And when she was served poached
    Even though she was coached
    Her tears puddled up on the side
