    Share your urban limericks for St. Patrick's Day

    With St. Patrick's Day fast approaching, we're asking readers to submit their best "urban limericks." The poems must follow the traditional five-line Irish form and be related to Boston. If you need inspiration, check out last year's top limericks -- and then post yours! The finalists will be chosen by a Boston Globe/boston.com panel and announced on March 12. The winner will be determined by your votes! So, get cracking -- and have fun!

    Trader Joe's is needed in Andrew Square

    Alex's is garbage and AHOP's just fair

    For yuppies there's organic grub,
    and the locals they might skip the pub

    Now that Stop n Shop rode unions bare

    The real estate market's gone bust
    But the people of Boston still lust
    For what we do best
    Is drink with great zest
    And think of good times as we must.

    There Once Was a Lad Named Patrick
    Who's life, it seems, was a "Train-Wreck",
    So he Moved out of Southie,
    And got Very Mouthy,
    And Died when his Pals broke his Neck.

    In Response to Re: Share your urban limericks for St. Patrick's Day:
    Another year and the Mayor's still here
    And there's no sign his departure is near   
    Thought the Councillors know   
    That someday he will go
    For now they drown their sorrows in beer.

    He drove his truck through the state

    Some voters thought he was great

    ’Til he got to DC

    And toasted with Tea

    No Independent is he!

    Another Saint Patrick's Day comes.
    The FBI stumbles like bums.
    They don't know that Whitey
    Is wearing a nighty
    On the Common while feeding birds crumbs.

    There  once was a women from Lynn
    who liked very much to drink gin
    she worked until noon
    and soon sang the tune
    Just when does the drinking begin?

    There once were young twins in the tower
    Who thought they'd control planes by the hour
    Now their Dad will be able
    To read to them a fable
    Of dreams of Yankee tickets that upon them would shower.

    There once was a Gov named Deval
    but "Patrick" one would hardly call,
    He shook lots of hands
    and said "Together we can"
    and meant "send the Commonwealth into freefall"

    Red Sox Limerick

    From a Red Sox Fan (a cynic)
    Out of a winter so dank and drear,
    Our Red Sox bid us all come and cheer.
    With hope and faith sober,
    Until cold October,
    Then wait we will again for next year.

    From a Red Sox Fan (an optimist)
    A summer we'll spend at old Fenway,
    Watching our team win both night and day.
    What pitching! What defense!
    It's only commonsense--
    Print the World Series tickets today!

    McCloskey had penned, "Make Way,"
    But a thief sacked a statue one day.
    We're short one canard,
    And we may need a guard
    To ensure the ducklings will stay.

    Having kids without a daddy,
    Sure takes a great big toll.
    Please set a higher goal.
    You won't live well on the dole,
    and you don't want your kids home on parole,
    so please use birth control.

     She is left, and he is right.
     He’s always angry, and she’s uptight.
     She’s dim-witted, and he’s not bright.
     Everything they say is trite.
     Below the surface, their differences are slight.
     They just want to fight,
     And bemoan their plight.

    There once was a team called the Bruins
    They were once mighty but now they're in ruins
    Chiarelli is to blame
    Why this team is so lame
    He hasn't got a clue what he's doin'

    there once was a lad named scott brown
    like paul revere with a truck he rode all around.
    to all that he meet, he reminded: 
    "the people's seat!"
    and now senator 41 is world-renowned.

    There was once a hot sandwich,
    that was filled with all things rich,
    Although it was from a place called Milk Street,
    it was nothing short of a pleasant treat,
    oh, how much I love you, you sexy witch.

    Bipartisan Love

    Bipartisan Love
    He voted for Scott Brown; she's a Dem;
    Matters political divide them.
    Though arguments abound
    they agree--love they've found
    So let's not this odd pairing condemn!

    Evacuation Day

    To the Fortunate Who Work for the City
    Ask, "What is Evacuation Day?"
    "No clue," city employees will say.
    Its history is lost;
    We all pick up the cost,
    A day off and--of course--it's with pay.

    I’m trying to come to term with the facts

    On why there was an increase in my property tax

    For Boston more budget cuts

    Its really driving me nuts

    Hey Mumbles, time to fire your hacks

    On Boston Weather

    Whither the Weather
    Out like a lamb, in like a lion,
    To describe a Hub March is lying.
    In as a lion, yes.
    Out? That's anybody's guess.

    A cop and a prof lost their cools,
    as busting your door breaks the rules.
    But what's better than cuffs?
    A six-pack of Duffs!
    And Biden will have an O'Doul's.

    a gay boy lived in the South End
    his legs double-jointed he'd bend
    he worked hard for his money
    the DL's called him honey
    no time with their wives would they spend.

    a lesbian lived in J.P.
    she would frequently give out her key
    "i can't live alone,"
    she cried on the phone
    "so pack up your truck, live with me!"

    a big drunken mess lived in Lynn
    he had more than the usual chins
    his nose was so red
    that he glowed in his bed
    so his wife left the man for his twin
