An Elf Named Piper - A Christmas Limerick

There was a young elf named Piper
At Christmas, she always got hyper
What was the reason
For her crazy season?
She was the lead candy-cane striper.

We can thank PETER PAUL
For having the gall
Even though I'm now BIGGER Around!

Thanksgiving Pie Recipe and Eating How-To-Guide

If you ask what's my favorite pie
Here is my standard reply
Pumpkin and spice

But apple always catches my eye.

But pecan's always good too
So here's what I like to do
Eat one slice of each
(Yes chocolate and peach)
And berry; straw-, black-, and blue-.

There Once Was A Witch - So Chic A Halloween Limerick

There once was a witch - so chic;
She never, to mortals, did speak.
She wore fancy clothes,
Had a beautiful nose,
And her hair was shiny and sleek.

But her heart was evil and black;
She needed the world out-of-whack.
She cast a foul potion
Into the ocean,
And made all the starfish go, "Quack."
