U2 Limericks

Hi everyone, sorry for posting so much in here, a little overly enthusiastic at having a new audience for my poems. I'll slow down a bit, but I just wanted to post my U2 limericks to start off the weekend. Can never have enough U2, Happy Friday everyone.

Elevation

Some groupies went to Elevation
But found to their consternation
They couldn't budge security
Despite offers of impurity
Alas there was no penetration

Alter Ego

When Bono emerged dressed as the Fly
There came of course the question why
"I think Macphisto may be sleeping
Mirrorball Man of course is weeping
So I crept back out on the sly"

Adam

On Achtung Baby there is a space
A nude pic of Adam in its place
I've tried in vain
Tried again and again
But that damned clover won't erase!

Hell Frozen Over

It finally happened one autumn day
Bono let Larry have his way
No lemons, flashes, or jumbotrons,
No glitter, no glam, no Fly icons,
Poor Larry was too stunned to play.

Laurie

Those are very good! They're witty. I especially like the last one, I think

I loved them all, but the best one has to be the final one! Laughed out loud at that one! Got any more, Laurie?
