Add a line or two or finish the thing. Just don't start a new one before the old one's done.

I'll start:

Who played on the drums with two spanners,
The band rocked with grace, in their rehearsal space,
But Nat quit without any manners.

There once once a man from Japan
Whose limericks never would scan
When asked why this was,
he replied, "It's because
I usually endeavour to fit an many unnecessary syllables into the concluding line as I possibly can."

There once was a man from St Bees [a place in England]
Who was stung on the arm by a wasp.
When they asked "does it hurt?"
He replied "no it doesn't,
But I'm so glad it wasn't a hornet!"

That was not very limericky, but thanks - it would probably be the first place where I fit right in, though.

There once was a place where I fit in
- Or that's what they all thought while sittin'
   

Warning - while you were typing a new reply has been posted. OMG WTF!

[email protected] OMG yet another reply! This thread had been inactive for days, so I didn't expect much action. Anyway, thanks! Now we have two limerick beginnings waiting to be continued, and I can't think of a rhyme for Sara.

Said "Limericks ought to be dirty.

Examples so clean.
If you don't buck up I'll get shirty."

There's 10,000 gold coins in there.

Then came Dale, swarthy spectacled charmer,
who said "Claire, that'd buy some fine armor."
On her guard Claire said "Bud,
Don't forget that big WHUD
I am friends with that merry gold farmer"
