LIMERICKS / ANTI LIMERICKS
The writing of good limericks you see
requires two parts insanitee -
two parts rhythyme
and three parts rhyme.
With that, you'll master the art completelee.
An exquisite limerick must have a twist -
something to pop when least
you expect it
like a bit of wit -
or even at times a disproportionately long, unrhymed and out of meter last line.
It is true that in many a Muslim land,
the lengthy limerick is quite bann'd
- but with tact
- u can contract
just ensure ‘MOHAMMED' appears and looks rather grand.
Limericks, apparently, should have anapests
but rules can be such pesky pests
I'd rather write mine
the way I like
with poor rhymes and iambs at best.
