Limericks for haldoor

Character-centric limericks for lostsquee Queen haldoor! You just had to go and mention limericks, didn't you?
Spoilers for S5!
Rating: G



There once was a man named Sawyer
Who made lonely, rich women purr
Once he took them to bed,
With their money he fled
Cuz that's what he was in it fer.

There once was a doctor named Jack
A mighty fine doc, that's a fact
A man of science,
Though not big on guidance
His motto: "We need to go back!"

There once was a man named Sayid
Who was skilled at making men bleed
The gun and the knife
Were tools of his life
But he could kill you with just his feet!

There was once a rich boy named Boone
Whose death was unfair and too soon.
His last words: "Tell Shannon"
He lives on in fanon
Still making fangirls (and Jack) swoon

There once was a Scots man named Hume
Who drank more than one ought consume
Though time he traveled
Its fabric unraveled
Until his blue shirt met its doom

There once was a man named Richard
Whom, to a strange island, was lured
We don't know quite when
But he's old as sin
Although that's just what we've heard

There once was a woman named Kate
Whom everyone just loved to hate
She was horribly torn
Since the day she was born
Whether to embrace Skate or Jate

There once was a woman named Sun
Who couldn't believe what she'd done
English, she learned
A husband, she spurned
Unsure, in her oven, whose bun?

There once was a dear chap named Pace
Who had slipped rather sharply from grace
He gave up the drugs
Said goodbye with hugs
And died for nothing, such a waste!

There once was a looney named Locke
Who, until recently, couldn't walk
It should really be said
That now he is dead
Or is that just a load of crock?

There once was a psychic named Miles
Who could hear the dead roaming the aisles
They'd tell him a lot
Like, big holes in the plot
Such as those ripped from The X-Files

There once was an Aussie named Claire
Who had long, beautiful blonde hair
She's now with her dad
Which isn't so bad
Though Aaron felt it rather unfair

There once was a young man named Daniel
Who was more than a little forgetful
We blame Eloise
Because, if you please,
She raised him to be sacrificeable

OMG! Do you know how much I love you!???

These are brilliant and exactly what I hoped to see! Thank you so much! *huggles you madly* My fave is the Sayid one, but all of them are great! ;-)

Yay! I love that one the best too!

I couldn't sleep, so I've added one for Daniel. :)

Hee! OMG, the limerick bug bit you hard! These are all great, but I especially like Boone's, Desmond's, Kate's (made me quite literally burst out laughing - and there are people around), and Sun's. Oh yeah, I really liked the one for Miles too.

Are they like potato chips for you? Can't do 'em myself, the haiku-bug is what usually bites me, and it's very much a can't-eatwrite-just-one thing.

Hee, it DID bite me hard! :) Very happy that I got a laugh out of these. Not everyone's storyline lends itself to a punchline.

I think these might be my very first limericks, actually, but once I got going, I was having so much fun I figured I'd do a few more!

HEEEE!!! These are amazing!!

Kate's and Boone's are totally my favorites, though, just because they're TRUE. :)

Thank you! Hee, they are too true, aren't they? :)

These are amazing. It would be hard to pick a favourite because each one is so perfect. If there was a career in limericks, you could be CEO of the world. Genius.

Oh wow! *bows* Thank you so much, hon! They were so much fun to write!

MUAHAHAH THESE ARE THE AWESOME. Oh dear, I cracked up at each single one of them, but guess what...

There was once a rich boy named Boone
Whose death was unfair and too soon.
His last words: "Tell Shannon"
He lives on in fanon
Still making fangirls (and Jack) swoon


This = BEST THING EVER. Oh damn, I want to make icons out of them, they are ALL so good. The Richard, Jack and Desmond ones were also made of TOTAL gold material.

Awww! I had to throw that one in there as haldoor said she was a fan of Jack/Boone. And who isn't? :)

And icons! *bounces* I would be incredibly honored!

BRILLIANT!

They just kept getting better! I thought that Sayid was my favorite 'til I read Boone...then Desmond, then Richard, and Sun's is downright funny.

You've managed to make canon fun!

Holy crap! I never knew you had this amazing talent! You've been holding out on us. These are awesome! Somehow the Sun one just had me in fits. :)

Wow, thanks! These might be the first limericks I've ever written! I think I drew on my love of Edward Gorey, who excelled at them. The Sun one is one of my faves too.

Oh my God, YOU WIN THE INTERNETZ. This is brilliant! I love the Sun "Unsure, in her oven, whose bun?" line and Sayid and Charlie's verses in particular. You rock so hard! ♥
