Drimericks – Swordplay

I bet you thought I’d forgotten all about “Drimericks” (Drali Limericks), didn’t you?

You were right!

But then I remembered, so here’s another one, along with an accompanying DraliDoodleTM, lovingly crafted by our talented and professional team :-).


There once was a fencer named Gary
Who was quick with the thrust and the parry
But one day on the street
He fell over his feet
And skewered a postman named Barry.


If you missed them, don’t forget to check out my previous Drimericks, “Angels” and “Man in a Tank“.

    Remember the days when dogs were the only real threat to postmen? What is this world coming to?

      It’s a dangerous profession 🙂

    Bahahaha! not sure which is better the limerick or the doodles 😀


    • November 7, 2014 at 8:46 pm

      They’re complementary 🙂
      I’m happy you liked them both.

    Love the blood spatter on the postman doodle. It adds a certain je ne sais quoi.

      I guess he hit an artery 🙂

    Ali, That neighborhood may lose its postal service. 🙂 Fencing is the wrong sport for someone who has two left feet. 🙂 — Susan

      Certainly some sort of body armour would be required if our clumsy fencer is still at large 🙂

    Poor Barry! So that’s what happened to my mailman!

      Sadly, yes. Your route is now considered “too dangerous” 🙂

    I love the drawings–much better than I could do. The limerick ain’t half bad either 🙂

    Great stuff!

    I believe if you slaughter the postman, you are legally required to take over his route. Happy delivering, Gary…

      “Here’s your letter, ma’am.. oops, sorry, I don’t think it hit anything vital…”

    MOL 😀 You’re good in this, Draliman. Purrfect 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂

      Glad you liked it 🙂 Happy Weekend to you and granny too!

    Ah, you can educate the boy but the man keeps his crayons. Love the splatter.

      I’m glad you’re enjoying my Drimerick series 🙂 I quite liked this violent little one myself.
