Lovecraftian Limericks

He sleeps in R'lyeh down below.
Where horror abounds under toe.
You thought he was dead,
But he's back in his bed,
And he waits for the right stars to glow.

Cthulhu poetry! What the heck?
Time for a sanity check...
Keeper makes me roll twice on D ten,
And I wind up with 100 again.
Wow, this straight jacket's a pain in the neck.

It beckons me. Losing my grip.
The reef off shore Innsmouth's a trip.
It smells kind of fishy,
and looks a bit squishy,
I fancy I'll go for a dip.

Hahahah! Love this idea!

Hmm...

There was an old man from Innsmouth,
Who proposed to a gal from the deep south.
He loved her dry wits,
And her generous grits...
But she didn't care for his fins much.

Of Cyclopean ruins in Maine,
I have nothing to show but disdain.
Our room was abysmal,
The service was dismal;
And the things in the dark were profane.

Lol, Love that one! So good.

Let's see...

The tome was quite dusty, and old.
It smelled of black sin laden mold.
I skimmed it a bit,
and had a small fit.
So, by chapter 2 I was sold.

Nice one!
Sin laden mold is never a good sign.

Lost in dark places, alone.
Nyarlathotep sits on his throne.
His face is obscured,
And coldness inferred,
Ensuring no mercy is shown.

There once was a dread elder being
Whose presence was quite guaranteeing
That sanity lost
Was quite a low cost
For horrors not meant for men's seeing
