Just experimenting with styles. The Limerick has a set of rules that even non poets can follow and use.

Short and usually obscene or at least off color, they can be fun to read and write. The Limerick actully has quite a place in history if you care to read up on them.

A Limerick so it would seem

Came to me in a dream

It started to suck me in

A most delicious sin

As it certainly was obscene

 ..

A Limerick must have five lines

First and second must rhyme

Third and the fourth the same

Counting syllables the game

The fifth must match the first this time

 ..

Written first by a guy named Lear

Eighteen hundred was the year

He was a merry bloke

He liked a dirty joke

His Limericks brought people cheer

 ..

Most anyone can make one

Doing so can be such fun

Give it a good try

Don’t you be too shy

You will feel good when you’re done
