Toss Back That Lime Rickey

A spider once humbly said:
“Sir, it’s time to get out of your bed!”
I must say I was shocked, that a spider could talk,
So I squished him until he was dead.

I once met a man named Finny,
Arm in arm with his sweet bride Winnie,
But I’ll tell you the truth, he was sleeping with Ruth,
He’s now known as the w**** from New Guinea!

A little frog let out a moan,
He’d cut his foot on a stone!
He needed some help, he tried hard to yelp,
Too bad he had travelled alone.

Badgers are never that nice,
I’ve learned this lesson now twice!
I reached out my arm, but he seemed quite alarmed,
So his teeth clamped on like a vise!

Have you ever seen a cats nose?
It’s lovely and pink like a rose.
But stay away from the paws, as they’re riddled with claws,
That’ll put scratches upon you in rows.

I once saw a sweet tiny mole,
Who swallowed a giant peach whole!
I screamed: “Little guy, you’re going to die!”
Apparently that was his goal.

This is a collection of limericks, mostly to do with small animals. I just love the flow to limericks so I made a collection of them. I imagine this collection will grow larger with time!
