You beat me to it, Peter!
my offering (for what it is worth) was as follows:-

Trilby was rather a dish
With a voice that was fairly deepish
Her Début to Finale
Was controlled by Svengali-
-'s hypnotic eyes - cold as a fish.

As a man Little John Bland was a loser
Mainly because his manly mind was muzzy
But John was beautiful
And also mutable
He changed his name and "Jean" became a huzzy

If you wish to make love to a maid,
It don't do to be starchy or staid:
Remove panty-hose
So she won't twitch her toes -
Who knows? you might get twice-laid!

Note: This is not a Sparteye Game reply. My dictionary didn't list "searching" without a "g". But The Coasters did back in 1957, so...


Well, Sherlock Holmes
Sam Spade got nothin', child, on me
Sergeant Friday, Charlie Chan
And Boston Blackie
No matter where she's secluded
She's gonna hear me a comin'
Gonna walk right down that street
Like Bulldog Drummond
'Cause I've been searchin' laugh


Otherwise, Rhuby, I think your twitching toes in panty hose poem epitomizes the Limerick. Thank You. smile

Thank you, jj - and your response, whilst not stictly a limerick, is an excellent use of what was given.
I have now put in the errant "G" - it haad got caught up on a string, somewhere (that's my theory!) wink

It's time – you may want to seclude
Yourself from the world, 'cause it's rude.
Undead are now lurching;
For fresh brains they're searching.
It's the Zombie Apocalypse, dude!

Couldn't resist; nonetheless, it's jj's turn.

The cons in a Halloween jailbreak
Had nothing to feed on but stale cake
But they both said, “Oh My!
Let’s make pumpkin pie!”
And tucked in to a good jack-a-lant bake.
