Today's Review: Limericks

Limerick is a poetic treat,
In anapest or amphibrach feet,
The lines three and four,
(Yet one, two, five more),
Form rhymes altogether so sweet.

While easy to sit down and write,
You must take care when you recite,
For while they are crude,
They are mostly quite rude,
And could well result in a fight.

Sex innuendos abound,
But word play is quite often found,
While sometimes quite clever,
They don't last forever,
Rarely leave an impression profound.

So if you decide to ask me,
I will confidently decree,
Other forms are sublime,
But limerick's fine,
So out of a five I give three.

  1. God I hate the rhyming scheme of limericks, it would be better if it just wasn't there.
