Limerick


There was an old man called Sepp Blatter
To whom football just didn't matter
As long as his crime
Through the fullness of time
Made his thick FIFA wallet grow fatter.

    1. A Tennesee lady called Mary
      Had parts that were terribly hairy
      After self-immolation
      And deforestation
      She's now as glabrous as a fairy.

    2. Well, my hair is very short and very grey, but "glabrous"??

      And now I guess I'll have to learn to write limericks as well as haiku.

  3. I laughed out loud. I also laugh at the attitude of people who despise what they see as corruption in countries whose economies are not as fabulous as Western economies and then applaud and promote the very same thing on a grand scale when it happens at home.

    I don't get it...

    1. An Australian lady called Lee
      Went to Blatter's place for her tea
      She started to blush
      And her heart turned to mush
      When he clamped his old hand on her knee

    2. And how so loudly he did bawl
      His cry was heard down the hall
      When strategically her foot hit his ball
      He was the one then to turn red
      With his tail between his legs he fled

    3. I didn't realise that just like Adolf Hitler, Blatter has only got one ball.

  6. I'm sick and tired by now of the FIFA affairs being endlessly on every news programme, but your limerick sums it all up nicely and certainly makes me neither sick nor tired.
    By the way, I love limericks ever since our English teacher first introduced them to us when I was about 11. My mind is just not bright enough to make up my own.

    1. A Ludwigsburg lady called Meike
      Wanted her neighbours to like her
      She invited them in
      For hors d'oeuvres and pink gin
      All displayed on her kitchen formica

    2. I love it!!! Thank you! Am I allowed to nick it and publish it on my blog? (Giving credit to the author, of course.)

    3. Of course you may nick it Ambassador. You wouldn't want to read the alternative and more mischievous version that fluttered briefly in my mind!

    1. I wonder what rhymes with Graham apart from the obvious - mayhem.

  8. I must say, I really do not understand all the fuss. I especially do not understand why our FBI is involved. It's not like they have no corruption to investigate right here at home!

    Love all the limericks! You could write a tome of them in a week and make tons of cash. But then, the FBI might get after you. Better not.....

    1. A woman called Peace Thyme Garden and Weather Station
      Offered me congratulation
      When in rapid time
      I penned a rhyme
      That filled her with huge admiration

  9. Sepp Blatter? Is that a disease that affects one's ability to piss?
