Shoe shine, Mister?
The Man From Cincinnati
There once was a man from Cincinnati
whose typical dress was quite natty.
His shoes were in style.
He kept them awhile,
until they became too ratty.
The Lady From Peru
There once was this lady from Peru.
Her politics were surely a stew.
She liked Democrats,
and Republican spats.
But tended to Green through and through.
No robo-calls, please.!
The Man From Saskatchewan
There once was a man from Saskatchewan.
Who made sure to be up before dawn.
He worked with a zest,
and never did rest,
until sunset when he started to yawn.
Climb every mountain!
The Gal From Montana
There once was a gal from Montana
who always wore a bandanna.
Her neck was so wrinkled and dry,
it crinkled with her every sigh.
But softened when she moved to Savannah.
You're so funny Grampa!

Venkatachari M - Limericks need no special context, although I have done some about famous personalities. Not so in these. Thanks for your chuckles.

Very entertaining and amusing limerick. Enjoyed them with smiles even though I didn't catch the actual context of these limericks. I hope they are the famous TV characters.
