I love limericks, always have, I'm not very good at them myself but if you know any steampunk limericks or if you are just good at making them up,
please share them!
I can't think of one at the moment Huh but I will put my noggin to it and add one later in the topic.

There was a young lady from Bree
Whose limericks stopped at line three.
They never completed

And people felt cheated.
'Cos, five lines are better, you see?

I met a young man named James
Who enjoyed all sorts of Games
His favorites were Racing
His airship was Pacing
But it all went up in flames

I once went down by the sea
An Octopus invited me to tea
I got in my sub
to visit his club
But no Ladies are allowed in, you see!

There's a couple of hundred of 'one line limericks' that aren't specifically about steampunk..but have all been written by steampunks which , I guess, would make them 'steampunk's limericks'..

I once met a man in fine goggles
In an dufflecoat with solid brass toggles
He said 'come take a trip
In my private airship'
And he had one as well! The mind boggles!

A dashing young steampunk called Smith
Reported to the Police forthwith
He said  "On close inspection
My fine hat collection
Is one short. Someone's taken the Pith!"

A man once said without unction
"Can I just say, at this conjunction
I may be a fun spoiler
But with no water or boiler
That 'steam-powered ray gun' won't function"

I say, Joe it's jolly frightening out here.
Nonsense dear boy, you should be more like me.
But look at you! You're shaking all over!
Shaking? You silly goose! I'm just doing the Watusi

There once was a steampunk named Sam,
Who was famed for his smoked kraken and spam,
He cooked it for the queen,
She said this is obscene,
This spam is still in the can!

Sir Henry set off in a Balloon
For a Princess whose gaze made him swoon
Though her father, the Sultan
said "Sir Henry Dalton!"
"My Daughter won't marry a Buffoon!"

There's a pie shop on a dark street
Who don't reveal their sources of Meat
There's a Barber above
Knows neither Mercy or love
But his Prices for shaves can't be beat!

There is a Place in Old Thornton Hall
Where there's a strange design on the wall
It looks like a gear
What's it doing here?
Eh, it's probably nothing at all.

Not sure how steampunky these, but here you go:


Helped myself at high tea to a scone
But it tasted and felt like a stone
The butler did say
That our chef passed away
I would have gone to the club had I known


Drinking brandy served in fine crystal
My friend showed me his new sporting pistol
It came from Bombay
And I said, all that way?
All I know is I got mine from Bristol

There was a young lady from Dorset
Who wore the most fabulous corset
With goggles in hand
Her airship she'd land
And if it wouldn't start then she'd force it.

There was an old man, Max O'Rafferty
Whose airship sank, causing hilarity.
His mechanic said 'Max,
You should try to relax,
Helium will fix the disparity.'
