A Limerick For Everybody’s Favourite Double Child Killer

There once was a nonce name of Hunt-
Ley
who said “I’m sure that knife is blunt”,
But alas, it was not,
Now a scarred face he’s got
In Frankland gaol, the murdering cunt.

A Nameless Computer Limerick

A computer, to print out a fact,
Will divide, multiply, and subtract.
But this output can be
No more than debris,
If the input was short of exact.

A Nice Pair

There was once a young lady named Sam
Who said: Brainless you may think I am,
Just because I undress
For the popular press,
But I’m making a mint,
(Not bad for a dumb bint),
So I really could not give a damn.

A Question Of Degree

Poor old Thatcher, how sad she must be,
For she’s just been refused a degree:
An honorary one,
Guess that’s one up the bum
For the snatching old bitch - ha ha he!

A Tongue Twister: Kalamazoo Sue

There was a young man of Kalamazoo
Had a girlfriend, Sue,
And a smew called Slew.
He said to her:
“O Sue, be true and never stew my smew,
For if you, Sue, should stew my Slew,
And if you tricked me, Sue, to chew
The stew of my smew, my stewed Slew,
I’d chew, then spew my stewed smew Slew over you.”

Afrikannot Do That

’Twould be folly for the Afrikaner
To turn over, today, or mañana,
His great nation to scum
Like that murdering bum
Bob Mugabe, or Canaan Banana.

Alan Freeman

There was once an old DJ named Fluff
Who said: Metal’s made of the right stuff,
And although I’m not young
I would rather be hung
Than play Country, soul, or that schmaltz guff.

Alan Turing (1)

There once was a homo named Turing,
Who said: I find queer sex alluring,
And though I have tried
Hormone treatment, he cried,
There’s no way my perversion it’s curing.

Alan Turing (2)

Said: There’s a peculiar thing,
I’m great at code-breaking,
And quite good at taking
A length, though I find it does sting.

Ali Oops!

There was once a bent copper, Dizaei,
Whose methods were cunning and sly,
Alas, now it appears
He’s been given four years
After one of his schemes went awry!

All At Sea

It was on the Free Enterprise ferry
While the crew were imbibing their sherry,
That, on hearing some screams,
The first mate said: It seems
That our guests are unusually merry!

An Extended Limerick: The Public Schoolboy

A public schoolboy, Algernon,
Found “whore” in his new lexicon;

Met one, asked her price,
And went with her twice,
Caught scabies and lice,
As well as both chancre and gonn.

[The above was first published in A Book Of Limericks]

An Ode To Michael Barrymore

Why you so much us Soviets hate-o?

The poor bleeder’s still locked up in Rampton.

Beebie Geebies

When a punk applied for a position
With the Beeb, he was met with derision,
Although not, it appears
Of the rings in his ears,
But because he had no circumcision.

Bird In The Bush

It’s well-known there are fish in a lough,
But it isn’t well-known that the chough
Is a similar bird,
To the jay - that’s absurd?
They are of the same family though!

Birthday Limerick

Today’s the first day of the rest of your life,
Admittedly it has seen heartache and strife,

Claude The Crab - An Extended Limerick

By eating me, for though I’d taste
Nice baked, boiled or raw,
You will earn so much more
If you take me to shore

In a place where I’ll not go to waste.

Till a guy smashed his balls
Round the courts and the halls,

Don’t you wish you were rich as a Getty,

You could throw it around like confetti?

Because she still answers
The Sun’s necromancers
From the other side - yes, what rot!

But you never will do
Higher maths in base two
If you study until your centenary!”

Isl’Armful Joke

Was a Libyan student named Qaafi,
Had a pet rat he Christened Qadafi,
Ignoring a rumour
His leader’s ill-humour
Would make his blood boil
And his own career spoil;
Now the rat can be found
Six feet under the ground
Lying next to his owner,
Because the old groaner

Took the joke in bad taste,
Told his hit men go waste
The young creep: “He will not at me laugh-i!”

On Alekhine

It’s well known the great Alekhine
In his personal life was not fine,

On An Anonymous Nigerian

Whose gob is distinctly superior,
Which is rather good luck,
For his brain’s full of muck
Of a kind that’s distinctly inferior.

And the blond is one Donny Lalonde.

Adultery isn’t a sin,
But if you fuck Kimberly Quinn,
While Home Secretary,
You’d better be wary,
You might have to pack the job in.

On D. D. Home

Said a medium fellow named Home:
“From thin air I’ll make in this room
A ghostly apport.”

Who stood on a plinth in the rain;
His tricks are real clever,
But baby you’ll never
Convince me he isn’t insane.

On David Blunkett

Dave Blunkett is one of a kind,
But one thing that puzzles my mind,
You don’t need be very
Smart to secretary,
But how does he type if he’s blind?

On Ed Gein

Both a fiend and a cannibal. Swine!
Who said: “Yes, it is vile
To be a necrophile,

Of extra sen-sory perception,

Fully ninety per cent
Can be traced to naïve self-deception.

On Immanuel Velikovsky
And His Detractors

Velikovsky the euhemerist
Must be daft as a brush to insist
That Venus collided
With Mars and then glided
To where to this day it persist’.

Or perhaps the poor fellow was drunk,
Or as mad as an old Tsarist monk,
For when one analyses
His weirdo surmises
And theories, they’re shown up as bunk!

But the men with a sci’ntific yen
Won themselves little credit back then,
By the paranoid treatment
They gave to his statement,
Suppressing the works of his pen.

Still, we’ve come to expect men of science
To insist on the total compliance
Of the comm-un-i-ty
With the way that they see
Laws and theories: God help the defiants!

For it seems that religion has not
Quite a total monopoly got
Of the bigoted type
Who de-pre-cate as tripe
The less orthodox reasoning lot.

Because science is an oligarchy,
And the scientists are despots who see
Every man in the street
As outside the elite
If he hasn’t an honours degree.

But they’re nice people, and I don’t jest
When I say they’ve more brains than the rest,
As have all our dictators,
And like all dictators
They know who is right and what’s best.

On James Randi

There was a magician named Randi
Who said: Uri Geller’s a dandy,
He always can bend
Spoons and forks, but, my friend,
Only when a magician’s not handy.

On John Leslie

John Leslie a rapist? May-be,
But what is a near certain-ty,
Is that Ulrika J,
Game, or unwilling lay,
Has fucked his career in TV.

On Jonathan Oates

Said a learnéd historian, Oates:
I take utmost care of my quotes,
And don’t force my minions
To share my opinions
By shoving my views down their throats.

(Unlike Ludovic Kennedy).

On Literary Genius

Billy Shakespeare a writer was who
Was a genius, Milton was too,
But the brightest young men
With a yen
For the pen

Atheism is something that hurts;
I’d like to live forever,
Alas, I will never;
Death is everyman’s just desserts.

On Philip Klass

Said a Ufo researcher named Klass:
There are no little green men, alas,
And strange lights in the sky
Can play tricks on the eye,

On Psychic Detectives

The truth is, the psychic detective
Is quite useless and ineffective,
That crimes are solved by
Such con men, I’ll deny,
The evidence for...is defective.

On SARS

A terrible blight is this SARS,
It kills old folk, kids, and their ma’s,
Hong Kong’s in the thick,
But the Chinks aren’t as sick
As the vectors of filth in gay bars.

On Scott (Don Quixote) Lomax

There was once a young author, Lomax
Who said: “J. Bamber I’ll never axe,
For he’s not guilty, though
I can’t see how ’tis so,
But I plead: Don’t confuse me with facts!”

On Siegmund Freud

There once was a doctor named Freud,
Who was probably mad, paranoid,
To him, always sex
Was a problem, a hex,
A thing to be cured, not enjoyed.

[The above was first published in A Book Of Limericks]

On Ted Bundy

There was a strange fellow named Ted
Who bashed young girls over the head,
They fried sicko Bundy
The day after Monday,

On The Limerick

The limerick form may not be
Quite the purest or best poetry,
But at least it’s not full
(Like some stanzas) of bull,
And didactical pomposity.

[The above was first published in A Book Of Limericks]

On The Marshall Attack

On Ulrika Jonsson

There was an old slapper, Ulrika,
A well-known publicity seeker,
Who turned men quite pale
When she swallowed her ale
With one fell swig from a pint beaker.

Only A Kiss - A Limeraiku

A kiss
      May be bliss,
          But there’s more
              (Of that I’m sure),
                  To true love than this.

Oscar Reviled

There was a queer loved a bloke, Bosie,
And all in the garden was rosey,
Or so Oscar thought
Till he wound up in court,
And then life for him no more was cosey.

Oscar Wilde

There once was a writer named Wilde,
Whose sexual habits weren’t mild,
In fact they’d appear
To be shockingly queer,
For a nobleman’s son he defiled.

The Marquis, he sent Wilde a note:
To the sodomite Oscar, he wrote.
Oscar Wilde sued for libel,
But soon got an eyeful,
And backed down against the old goat.

Shortly afterwards came his arrest,
And poor Oscar was surely distressed
When sentenced to do
Hard labour for two
Long years as Her Majesty’s guest.

On release from his punishment place,
He departed in shame and all haste,
Thus, hard up and exiled
Did poor Oscar Wilde
Spend the rest of his life in disgrace.

Queer Talk (1)

Said the Member for Billericay
To Tom Robinson: What can I say?

To both sing and be glad to be gay.

Queer Talk (2)

Said a butch queer: “Please don’t be offended
When we have it off, if I’m unbended,
For if I weren’t so broke,
I’d not go with a bloke,
(And I won’t when my dildo is mended).”

Radio Four

Who ate ravioli for tea,

Who would eat only greens,
Baked and harricot beans,
Wholemeal bread, and occas’nally, soya.

Rotten Al Davis

A dirty old junkie named Davis
Has a face that’s all covered with scabies,
And an unshaven chin,
And a Mexican grin
Like a chimp in the last stage of rabies.

He hangs around with an old hippie,
Who is almost as slimy and slippy
As his Mexican pal,
But at least, unlike Al,
Mr Rochford’s polite, and not lippy.

Now Davis was once a song writer,
And now and again he’s a fighter,
But he only fights wimps,
(Short moustachioed blimps),
Cos he’s really a cowardly blighter.

He plays just a little backgammon,
And he worships the Big H and Mammon,
But he’s useless at chess,
When he’s beaten, he says:
“My opponents were lucky, so damn ’em!”

He’s so fascinated by queers,
That he’s latently homo, one fears,
For he talks of Boy George,
And of filling his gorge;
It’s enough to reduce one to tears.

But Davis is not a bad fellow,
He treats me most kindly and mellow,
Cos he knows I’m a smasher,
Bad Bernard the Basher,
And he isn’t just scabby, he’s yellow.

Have for many years been in the red,
For these poor overstafféd Miss Moffets
Have been fleeced from the tail to the head

While the tax and rate payers are bled.

Met her friends in the rail caff, then walked down the lane,
But on the way home,

Grabbed her, and poor Amanda was not seen again.

Up The Front (1)

If you’re thinking of joining the Front,
You must qualify, and, to be blunt,
You most certainly will
If you’re mentally ill,
Or a sadist, or some sort of div.

It does help if you’re young, hard and white,
Even if you’re unwilling to fight,
For it may well be that
Some Directorate cat
Will adopt you as his cata-mite!

Why Can’t I Grow A Beard?

Why can’t I grow a beard?
It’s more than daft, it’s weird,
I’m twenty-eight,
It’s more than late
Or overdue, I’m feared.

A bit of fuzz would suit
A face like mine, old fruit,
The damn thing though
Just will not grow,
Or even spring to root.

Could be deficiency
Vitamin A or B,
Or some such thing,
It’s bothering
And really worr’ing me.

Perhaps I shouldn’t fret,
Or worry or regret,
For middle age
Will not engage
A man who’s beardless yet.

Yes! That must be the truth,
In body I’m a youth,
A latter day
Dorian Gray
Who’ll ne’er grow long in tooth.

Egad! That’s mighty clever,
For as long as I never
Do sprout a growth
That means I’ll both
Stay young and live forever!

Were a saucer ship’s crew,
And they took me right up in the sky.

Wrong Number: A Double Limerick

Said a mathematician to me:
There’s a number that isn’t quite three
That goes on forever,
And if you are clever
You’ll know it, but what can it be?

But I saw by the look in his eye,
I was wrong - It is e!
The old sod said with glee,
You are not half as clever as I!
