LIMERICK

 

Joking and sometimes a bit hearty – that’s what makes a good limerick. In the end of the five-verse poems, there’s always a punchline. Limericks were invented in the 19th century – and in an Irish pub itcertainly can’t hurt to have a few good ones up your sleeve. We have written our own.

1

There once was an e-bus from Munich
that wanted to drive up to Limerick!
With a team from MAN
which said: “Yes, we can!“
it easily pulled off this big trick. 

2

The bus climbed the Alps with ease.
Recuperation got Heinrich quite pleased.
We went up and down,
saw Liechtenstein‘s crown
and nobody had to pee.

3

Bright sunshine, our faces aglow.
The battery never went low.
From St. Moritz to Brussels
for some power and mussels.
What a lovely journey, what a show! 

4

Suddenly we reached a big stream.
It’s up in the air! All screamed.
With a ship above our heads
We thought we’ve gone mad.
Man, we’re a lucky team! 

5

In the end we sailed across the sea
with lots of Guinness, no tea.
Then Ireland was seen
with all shades of green
our Lion made it – finally! 

THE END
