Trippy Limerick

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

A woman was planning a trip…

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

A woman was planning a trip,
When her husband said, “Please, get a grip.
Our bank account’s low.
We have one-way cash flow.”
But his wife said, “Enough with your lip!”

“You’ve been wasting our cash at the track
And on poker and possibly crack.
I’m sick of this life
And of being your wife.
So goodbye, it is you who should pack.”

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.

To receive an email alert whenever I post a new Limerick-Off, please send me an email requesting the alerts. You’ll find my email address on the upper right sidebar, right above my photo. Thanks!

    A woman was planning a trip
    To a place where she could wear flip
    Flops all day long
    And just wear a thong
    While cold daiquiris she would sip

    A woman was planning a trip
    ‘Til she fell and shattered her hip
    Her hospital stay
    Was no getaway
    And the cost about made her flip!

    “No government healthcare” some say.
    “ ‘Cept Medicare, THAT seems okay!”
    Thus deeper in debt
    We continue to get
    Soon none will be able to pay!

    A woman was planning a trip
    But she was tragically un-hip
    She booked on the Titanic
    And called out in a panic
    “The boat! It’s just done a flip!”

    A woman was planning a trip
    On an Alaskan Cruise liner ship
    She longed to see life in the wild
    And a past gov’ner much defiled
    But the economy took a great dip

    Twas a sad woman who stayed home
    On Travel Channel she did roam
    She tuned into Fox
    She ate a lot a lox
    And stopped dreaming of blue ocean foam.

    A woman was planning a trip.
    A week on the Las Vegas Strip.
    When she saw all the porn,
    she felt reborn,
    and purchased a new leather whip.

    And the woman was soon heard to quip,
    “I think I’ll pierce my lower lip.”
    But you won’t see a thing,
    of her newly pierced ring,
    unless you look under her slip.

  8. A woman was planning a trip
    But her husband said, “This is a gyp!
    “A week at Niagara
    “With a pound of Viagra
    “But first, a vasectomy snip?””

    A woman was planning a trip
    Thinking that she was so hip
    She took LSD
    And giggled – tee hee
    until she started to flip (out).

  10. A woman was planning a trip
    And decided to take her son Chip!
    The kid turned out to be a pain in the neck
    Because he was complaining like heck…
    Sea sick saying: I need to get off this ship

  11. Jim Conrad says:

    A woman was planning a trip…
    Her daughter said “Mother get a grip.”
    “You can’t take a flight
    Without entering the spotlight
    When the guy from TSA makes you strip.”

  12. madkane says:

    Thanks Scott! Glad you liked my limerick. I especially liked your punchline. And thanks everyone for your delightful limericks. Please keep them coming!

  13. Edmund Weisberg says:

    A woman was planning a trip,
    Knowing that she was likely to strip.
    So her bag was scanty
    With nary a panty
    But through customs she sported a slip.

  14. Dr. Goose says:

    A woman was planning a trip
    And decided to travel by ship:
    “Plane travel demands
    I allow roving hands
    Or else electronic’ly strip.”

    Madeleine – loved your story and the track/possibly crack rhyme!

  15. Johanna Richmond says:

    A woman was planning a trip
    To ANYWHERE out of her zip
    But her miniscule stash
    Of available cash,
    Changed her goal to a new shiny whip.
