On Falling Down(Limerick)
The Limerick is:
a poem in 5 lines, a pentastich.
metered verse written in anapestic patterns. L1, L2 and L5 are trimeter (3 metric feet) and L3 and L4 are dimeter (2 metric feet) . (anapest = da da DUM or u-u-S = unstressed, unstressed, stressed syllables.)
a quintain (5 lines) .
written with a rhyme scheme a, a, b, b, a.

It fell, I fell, it ran away fast
I sat and sat and could not move next
Satan lizard it was
Bed ridden bad I was
sprain and pain complained to reign at last

Time healed raised me bit to walk somewhat
Down again I fell, me torn apart
'Saturn-Mars retrograde'
They say 'to play they preyed'
'To tear my calf muscle wrong at last'
