There was a young lady called Pip,
Who was eager to go on a trip
But there was one hurdle....
A tight-fitting girdle,
Which just wouldn't zip over her hip!


And an old one for good measure!


A zebra went out walking and on the road, by chance,
He met his friend Zucchini and he asked her for a dance.
They danced the Zigzag polka from side to side to side,
And they laughed so much they both fell down and cried.

The zebra looked so handsome with zinc upon his nose,
And Zucchini was a lady who was not inclined to doze.
With zest and zeal they hopped around enjoying all the fun
Until they were so dizzy that their zips all came undone!

So, we'll dance the Zigzag polka, we'll dance it while we may.
We'll dance to the Zigzag music till we're crazy!
We'll dance the Zigzag polka, dance it night and day!
But we can't do the Zigzag polka if we're lazy!


Grandson Max had his fourth birthday party today. Did you ever see such an excited face?

I've got a daughter called Pip! Doesn't wear a girdle though - at least, I think not! Best of luck with the poetry challenge - if anyone can do it, you can!

I love limericks, so I personally think it was a fine choice for your Z poem, and I loved it!

For some reason, the comment button is missing below your Halloween post but I wanted to say I enjoyed it. I've an awful feeling I shouldn't enjoy it - but can't suppress a smile.
