The Art Of Writing Limericks Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

The Art Of Writing Limericks

Rating: 4.3

A limerick can be rather funny
when the syllables are on the money.
But when none of it fits
it can give you the shits
Would you stop writing limericks, sonny?

Very good Limerick. Interestingly, the first time I read this, my 'internal metronome' was a little off and the syllables, when I read them, didn't actually fit. I even started writing a comment praising your irony!

It was actually aimed at a poet on this site who posted a bunch of limerickoids. H

A crazy little limerick Herbert. I've written a few myself. If you would like to take a look at some of them, I'm sure you will enjoy them.
