Some 10 years ago, there used to be a group called Partners in Rhyme who created limericks on Awad words. I do not know whether they are still around. Subscribers to the list could contribute. I used to.

As a temporary truce had been declared, he adjusted his insignia and other military paraphernalia, departed on a sortie to inspect the curious battlefield graffiti of his enemies, and stepped on a improvised explosive device that erupted his viscera.

but now, of course, we have the OEDILF
(OED in limerick form [wink, wink])

I love my new blower—it's cool,
And now it's my favorite tool!
I have stopped using rakes,
Since the breeze this thing makes
Blows my leaves in the neighbor's new pool
