    Re: Share your urban limericks for St. Patrick's Day

    The Irish appear to be becoming a bit harried,
    Is it a result of their getting inter-married?
    The kids look more like a "carnie",
    than a child from Kilarney.
    Less freckled redheads, as the gene pool's more varied.

    They arrived at Ellis Island filled with apprehension,
    They moved up to Boston and dealt with condescension.
    They got jobs with the "T",
    then sent their kids to BC.
    Now they're all in Brant Rock with a pension.

    The Irish love a story that's sad,
    or a tale of a son who's gone bad.
    But they make it clear that they'd druther
    You don't insult their Mother,
    Or make wisecracks about dear old Dad.

    Russ and Mary had three boys and four girls,
    Irish kids with pluck, brains & tight curls.
    They stood out from the crowd,
    And did their parents proud.
    'Irish American" is the best of both worlds.

    Russ and Mary's last kid was a "Duesie",
    Having run out of saints' names they chose Susie.
    With her Irish smarts that kid flew,
    Right through Tufts and BU,
    and she still looks sorta twenty-two'zy.

    In Response to Share your urban limericks for St. Patrick's Day:
    With St. Patrick's Day fast approaching, we're asking readers to submit their best "urban limericks." The poems must follow the traditional five-line Irish form and be related to Boston. If you need inspiration, check out last year's top limericks -- and then post yours! The finalists will be chosen by a Boston Globe/boston.com panel and announced on March 12. The winner will be determined by your votes! So, get cracking -- and have fun!

    Where does one go to vote or does the panel do all of the voting?

    Mayors Curley, Hines, Collins, White and Flynn;
    If you were Irish you had the good shot to win.
    So how did Mumbles become Mayor?
    You know it's just not fair,
    Bumpin' the Irish out of the job is a sin.

    capecawder---your "limericks" are offensive and play on tired stereotypes, so please stop posting them.

    Capecawder and others--please go to Wikipedia and look up about limericks.  First of all, they are five lines in AABBA form.  That discounts practically half of the limericks on here.  Four lines?  Six lines?  Sorry, that won't do.

    Second, it is more than just rhyming.  The lines are supposed to have 9, 9, 6, 6, and 9 syllables.  No more, no less.  That takes out about 3/4 of the limericks here.

    Come on, people!

    What's Next?: the Tour de Franklin Pahk?

    There once was a cyclist named Mumbles,

    Whose speech contained many jumbles.

    Though not much a stutterer

    But more of a mutterer,

    From his bike did he take many tumbles.

    There once was a terrorist named Sands
    He was full hate with blood on his hands
    The man was dumb
    Ate no food and got numb
    Now the orange march to the wonderful bands.

    No Surrender!

    Martha Coakley was planning to head
    South to DC, to serve us, she said.
    But it wasn't a joke
    When she gave a big poke
    To Curt Schilling, whose Sox were all Red!

    Coakley Missteps

    Of Campaigns Lost
    There once was a woman named Coakley
    Who thought she'd succeed Ted Kennedy.
    She failed campaign demands--
    "In the cold? Shaking hands?"
    And was sent back to life as AG.

    and a coda:

    Children learn from candidate Coakley:
    From your campaign be not absentee.
    And you must press the flesh
    To with voters stay fresh.
    Earn the seat; there's just no guarantee.

    Urban Defender you've put me in my place,
    I guess you'll be policing this space.
    Well just between you and me,
    Limericks are best non-PC.
    So please just get off of my case!

    Menino Rebuttal

    In Defense of our Mayor
    An election unprecedented--
    "A fifth term's too much!" some lamented.
    Take your jabs, if you must,
    In another, would you trust?
    With Menino, we're quite contented!

    From Wrentham, Scott Brown, "41,"
    He swept, with a breathtaking run.
    A now-former JAG,
    With his girly mag,
    Took place of the Kennedy Son

    Don't do this after a few pints of Guinness

    You dare take a seat at the wheel?
    What laws? We just drive like we feel.
    No braking, just gas.
    "Bleep bleep!"  "Move your *ss!!"
    At rotaries - "Let's Make a Deal."

    Pub Parking

    I shoveled out my parking space.
    You steal it, and I'll know your face.
    Don't touch that old chair,
    Yes, I put it there.
    Our home-rules apply in this place.

    There once was a man named Scott Brown
    Who drove his old truck all around.
    He shook lots of hands,
    Eschewing brass bands,
    And beat Coakley on her home ground.

    On St Patty's, I know where I'll park it,
    At Clarke's, the best bar in the market.
    And when I go in,
    I'll be wearin a grin,
    with my Visa deep down in my pocket!

    The Commonwealth being so broke,
    Developed a fine for a toke.
    The cops are all mad,
    But the treasurer's glad
    For revenues made up from smoke.

    A hike in the taxes on sales,
    and meals for the watchers of whales
    Might bring in a bit,
    But we'll take quite a hit,
    When tourists start telling the tales.

    A day at the park

    There once was a ballpark named Fenway,
    Where many a baseball great did play,
    But some thought it'd be nice,
    To cover it in ice,
    And give the pucks a shot for a day.

         There once was a Mayor Menino.
         To the libraries he said no-no-no-no.
         If you want a good book.
         You'll be just out of luck.
         Use unemployment to buy a Kindle-o.

    There once was a lad named Brady
    who was wed to a hot model lady,
    through all of his planning
    he couldn't stop Manning,
    and that 4th and 2 play was just shady.
