    Default Bellydance Limericks

    I found a thread of Bellydance poetry from a couple years back, but fancied one devoted solely to limericks. So post your worse rhymes and most clever inventions. I need some funny things to read.


    A dancer who lost it on stage
    Stormed off and flew into a rage
    She swore like a gunner;
    Threw props at the drummer.
    They now keep her locked in a cage!


    A performer of Danse Oriental
    Decided that props were essential.
    But a cane and a fan,
    With a lit shamadan,
    Just made everyone think she was mental.

    On the old pre-hacked forum we had a thread devoted to BD limericks. If I can find the ones I wrote I'll post them.

    An impoverished dancer called Glenna
    Took tips in her bra to buy henna
    But her act went awry
    Upon meeting a guy
    Who rummaged for change for a tenner!

    A drummer who sat on the floor
    Yelled “I can’t sit still anymore!!”
    So he used both his knees
    To shimmy with ease,
    And shuffled right out of the door!


    Morgana, the dancer from Camelot,
    Found her memory started to spam a lot.
    She forgot the next step
    And felt quite inept,
    So she carried on smiling and span a lot

    Lol, yours are awesome!! Ok here's a try:

    A lady from downtown Dubai,
    once bought Wings of Isis to fly.
    She climbed Burj el Arab,
    and jumped off the top,
    Darn that salesman who told her a lie!

    The snake of a dancer called Jack,
    one day slithered right down 'round his back
    with his arms tightly bound
    as the snake wrapped around
    he fell right off the stage with a smack!

    A shamadan girl from Hawaii,
    got to dance for a good-looking guy.
    Kneeling down to look cute,
    she lit up his suit,
    burning everything down to his tie!

    And one my troupemates and I came up with years ago during a very amusing car-ride home after a great show:

    Our troupe is called El-Fatinat,
    we are great entertainment you bet!
    We don't dance for free,
    but it's worth it, you'll see.
    We are something you'll never forget!

    There once was a dancer for hire
    Whose performance, quite frankly, was dire.
    His shimmies were dodgy;
    His timing was bodgy;
    And his posture just filled you with ire!


    A student of Hilal's Raq Sharqi
    Said "I know that some can get snarky
    And say I've no passion.
    Well, that just their fashion.
    I follow what's in my own heart-y."

    A dancer who worked on a boat,
    got caught dancing by dad while afloat.
    When the music had ceased,
    he did not look pleased,
    thus he traded her in for a goat!!

    (I know: ouch! LOL, but it was in my head all day and I just HAD to get it out )

    A cute bellydancer called Sandy,
    Discovered that he was quite handy
    At teaching large classes.
    He took dance to the masses,
    And proved he was more than eye-candy


    A divine bellydancer once thought
    Herself far too good to be taught:
    I was born a Goddess!
    I have natural finesse.
    Disagree, and Ill just get distraught!


    Bellydancers have tried to discover
    A theory that pleases each other
    On the source of their dance.
    But they found theres no chance;
    Some dictate, some give up, some don't bother.


    A young bellydancer called Shirley
    Does veil work thats ever so swirly.
    She twirls on the spot;
    Gets tied in a knot;
    Then undone by a sailor from Burley.

    A hefty young dancer named Jimmy
    Decided to learn how to shimmy
    When his girth got to rocking
    His knees started knocking...


    Ten big smiles to anyone who can finish this. My other rhymes to "Jimmy " are lame but I like the first four lines.

    Scared he ran away, home to Kissimmee.



    Shanazel: Lamer than this? And do I get twenty big smiles now?
