Bob and Sheila

Recommended Posts

There once was a goblin called Bob

Who was known as a bit of a slob

He was all green and smelly

and as for his belly!

Well a diet would do just the job.

 

Now Bob had a girlfriend called Sheila

A bit of a sly wheeler dealer

She thought of a plan,

to sort out her 'man'

(with the help of a little tequila)

 

She invented a new fangled diet

But she wanted to keep her plan quiet

Till she'd have what she'd need

to sate her Bob's greed

And until she was ready to try it.

 

So Sheila got writing at once

A list of what Bob had to hunt.

Fresh human and elf -

not stale from the shelf

and a dwarf (tho not some little runt)

 

She needed to stock up her larder,

The next few would be a bit harder.

An orchan, a gnome

who were far from their home,

She thought they would make a good starter.

 

So after much mumbling and moaning

Bob started his search, tummy groaning

The human died quick

As he fell on his pick.

his blood all frothing and foaming.

 

Bob next went in search of an elf

and found one with very low health.

He killed it with ease

as it sat among leaves

harving flowers to increase it's wealth.

 

And so to the next on his list.

A Dwarf with more muscle and fists

it took a bit longer,

but Bob was much stronger

And killed it in just a few hits.

 

And now's when his problems will start

as he hunts for the gnome with a heart

that will fill him with food

that tastes really good

without ripping his body apart.

 

Bob hunted all through the dark night

searching places with very low light,

till he found what he needed,

and so he proceeded

to start on his very last fight.

 

The gnome she was wily and fast

and her magic, was so quick to cast

it didn't take long

Bob could feel his strength gone

as he breathed out his breath at the last.

 

My story has come to an end

and I wish I could only pretend,

that our old friend Sheila

and her bottle of tequila,

her old ways she soon learned to mend.

 

Alas it is not really true

so just between us, me and you,

when you see a fem gob

with an ex she called Bob

Just hope she gets eaten by grue.

Nice job Sleepy I like it, a smooth enjoyable read :)

 

I'm not sure if your intent was to make every stanza a limerick (because its very similar to limerick form), in which case I might have a few critiques on it. But it does work very well as just a free verse poem :confused:

haha, that's a fun rhyme/poem, good job :D

 

and as for his belly!

Well a diet would do just the job.

 

Wouldn't the ! be at the end of the last sentence and a common after belly?

I love the poem, and I love that it was done in limericks. It was a good choice because it keeps the lighthearted, silly tone of the poem.

 

Nice job!

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Glad you enjoyed it. I haven't written anything for a number of years and have never made anything public before so it's nice that it made people smile.

Each verse was intended to be in limerick form and I know that some of the rhythm in a couple of verses doesn't quite fit. I put the story over exactitude towards the end.

The exclamation mark was put in to emphasise the size of the belly and the diet was the solution rather than emphasising both things which putting an exclamation mark at the end would have done. (I think)
