A Vacancy in Heaven

A young Parish Priest Father Mason

Was much loved by his congregation.

He prayed to the Lord

For free room and board,

Now in Heaven he has a reservation.

Hot Head

Former British Prime Minister Blair

Had a toupee instead if real hair.

His wig caught on fire

At a site in Yorkshire,

Leaving Tony Blair's head red and bare.

Prayerful Parrot

There was an old lady named Birch

Who took her pet parrot to church.

It prayed and it sang

Til her mobile phone rang,

And her parrot fell off of it's perch.

Obama the Farmer

President Barack Obama

Once wanted to work as a farmer.

He once drove a tractor

Which wasn't a factor,

In planning to wipe out Osama.

Goth Moth

A young girl who dressed as a goth

Was tormented by a giant moth.

She sought exorcism

But copped some derision

By a stuffy old man of the cloth.

Phony Rabbit

A senator called Tony Abbott

Australia's top job he did grab it.

He became our Prime Minister

Which I find very sinister.

I prefer to call him Phony Rabbit.

Good God!

The Lord God looked down from above

Hoping to see kindness and love.

What he saw made him sad,

Man was greedy and bad.

He'd messed up, when push came to shove.

The Queen of Jive

The Head of Great Britain, the Queen

At home she can sometimes be seen,

Dancing the jive

With Elton at five,

For Prince Phillip just isn't so keen.

Ten Under Pastor

A generous doctor named Lincoln

Tithed 10 percent of his income

To a pastor named Rolf

With whom he played golf.

You could say he was paying to sink 'em.

Power Tools

Politicians are power hungry ghouls,

Often treating the people like fools.

though when protests are mounted,

And all votes are counted,

It's then we see who are the tools.

Highest Office

A young politician named Pope

To become President was his hope.

When he was selected,

And finally elected,

The leader was both President and Pope.

Trumped Up

There was a rich man named Trump

Who needed a rather hard thump,

His Presidential rival

Was a Clinton revival,

And also an annoying old grump.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 15, 2016:

Hey, Chitrangada. Thank you for that comment. I have just added a Trump vs Clinton Limerick at the end..I thought it appropriate with the US election looming.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on October 15, 2016:

Interesting and witty Limericks and you did a wonderful job!

I agree Politics and Religion are the most discussed topics and everyone has an opinion about them.

Humour is a good way to express our political or religious views in a clever way. You express your views and it doesn't offend anyone as well.

Thanks for the smile with this well written hub!

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 15, 2016:

Hi Shanmarie. This had become defeatured so I thought I would update and reshare for anyone who missed it before. Thanks for checking it out. Glad you found these limericks worth a laugh.

Shannon Henry from Texas on October 15, 2016:

Just saw this in the feed. I guess I missed it when you published it because I don't remember them. Hilarious!

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 15, 2016:

Thanks for revisiting, Ruby. I need to add a new one about Trump and Clinton. Glad you got a laugh.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on October 15, 2016:

I'm glad you shared this again. I needed a laugh in this crazy political season. I hope President Obama will retire on a farm and forget the woes he's had to endure these past eight years. I loved this...

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on May 30, 2015:

Hi Diana, scansion mansion :) ...yeah a couple may have been on the verge, but hey, it's all for fun. Thanks for reading and your comment.

Diana Grant from London on May 30, 2015:

Great ideas - good fun, albeit some of the scansion was a bit iffy. ....but the rest was fine!

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on April 17, 2015:

Thank you Sunshine, glad these gave you a laugh.

Linda Bilyeu from Orlando, FL on April 17, 2015:

Hilarious limericks! Way to go, John! :)

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on March 23, 2015:

Thank you Don, glad you like these and I do think there is more truth in them then is immediately evident. The world is indeed a little distorted.

Don A. Hoglund from Wisconsin Rapids on March 23, 2015:

I like your limericks. It is an art form that sort of points out that the world we see is maybe just a bit distorted.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 23, 2015:

Thanks Kim, glad I could help cheer you up. Take care my friend. Hugs.

ocfireflies from North Carolina on February 23, 2015:

Blessings,

Kim

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on January 15, 2015:

Another weird comment from guest users today.that doesn't relate..whatever, I do like test cricket and One Day Cricket much better than T20.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on January 15, 2015:

Another of a handful of weird comments from guest users today....totally irrelevant to the hub topic.

Jimmy on January 14, 2015:

I suppose bseuace it’s the longest, more established form of the game and has been around longer than ODI and T20 cricket. So Test cricket is prevalent in the consciousness of the wider, general, audience as the form that has more of a classical sensibility about it, what with the insistence on the white uniforms, the rules, the tea break (the only sport to have such a thing) and the long standing competition between certain nations etc. There are customs to it that just don't exist with the other forms.And it hasn’t changed all that much over the years in terms of revisions and innovations to the rules either (well not as much as other forms of the game anyway I don’t think). Well until relatively recently that is.Therefore people think of it as the traditional form.I'm sure there are better reasons out there than that though, I'm just guessing.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 18, 2014:

Thanks Kim, I love using humour an I feel it is often a more effective though more subtle way of getting a message across. Glad you found these funny.

இڿڰۣ-- кιмвєяℓєу from Niagara Region, Canada on October 18, 2014:

Humour is a powerful tool. It should be used more often. This was quite enjoyable, John. Funny stuff!

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 11, 2014:

Thanks for reading Petenali. Yes, limericks do have a little flexibility in their format but some people stretch that to the limit. I try not to deviate too far but the humour has to be there for it to work.

Pete from Ontario, Canada on October 11, 2014:

Some good limericks here for sure with clever satire included. Nice to see someone mostly employing the correct format for limericks. Enjoyed the read and chuckle.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 10, 2014:

Thanks for reading Jamie, glad you enjoyed, especially the last one about politicians.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 10, 2014:

Thank you Jo. Glad these gave you a laugh, pity it was in the library...and what's up with that librarian, doesn't she have a sense of humour.. :) ?

Thanks for voting up and sharing too.

Jamie Lee Hamann from Reno NV on October 10, 2014:

Jo_Goldsmith11 on October 10, 2014:

Jodah!

Up she goes....voted across the board. Blessings my funny friend! :-)

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 08, 2014:

Thank you Nell. Glad these gave you a laugh. I don't think Tony Blair really wears a toupee but the Queen has jived with Elton John. :)

Nell Rose from England on October 08, 2014:

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 08, 2014:

And the pact they could get,

And see if it brings on some Kharma

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 04, 2014:

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on October 03, 2014:

The Queen of Jive is my favorite, but you did a god job all round. Thanks for sharing more of your limerick side.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 03, 2014:

Always glad to give a laugh Ruby. I need to break up,the darker writing I've been doing lately with some light-hearted stuff. I think I have a few more limericks in me yet.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 03, 2014:

Thanks Kathy, I appreciate you visit and so glad you found these limericks funny.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 03, 2014:

Thanks Eric, I wasn't sure how these would be taken. Thanks for putting my mind to rest. We certainly do need to be able to laugh at ourselves.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 03, 2014:

Yes I am Shauna, don't think I've done that before. I had the limericks ready to go bar images, then wrote the love poem hub...and well it all came together. Thanks for giggling at these.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on October 03, 2014:

OMG, I can't stop laughing. You are so good at this. Obama the farmer.Hee. More PLEASE!

Kathy McGraw from California on October 03, 2014:

This was a good distraction and pretty funny. My favorite was the Prayerful Parrot, but then again I liked the Vacancy in Heaven :)

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on October 03, 2014:

Politics and Religion -- what better fodder for a great limerick writing comedian. If I cannot laugh at my own politics and religion then I have no business having them. And you can quote that.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on October 03, 2014:

Wow, two in one day! You're on a roll, John. Thanx for the giggles!

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 03, 2014:

Thanks Jaye, glad you found these both funny and true. Appreciate the vote up too.

Jaye Denman from Deep South, USA on October 03, 2014:

Funny and laced with more than a little truth! Power Tools, for example, really tells it like it is. Voted Up++

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on October 03, 2014:

Thanks for being the first to read and comment on these questionable limericks Bill. Glad you found them funny. You have a great weekend too.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on October 03, 2014:

You are a brave man, writing limericks about religion...you are also a funny man. :) Have a great weekend my friend.
