Well, friends, we’re closing in on the end of National Poetry Month, and frankly, I’m at a loss. I think I generally average about one poem a year, and even then, those are ones that come to me and not ones I set out to write on purpose. This writing poetry on demand is hard! I honestly don’t know if I can think of one more poem’s subject matter. So, for lack of anything better, today’s verse is about limericks and how they are structured.
A Limerick About Limericks
By: Rachel Carrera
Writing a limerick’s not hard,
Even if you’re caught off guard;
The fourth line and the third
Use the same sounding word;
You don’t even have to be a bard.
Writing a limerick is easy;
The notion should not make you queasy;
The fifth, second, and first
Lines rhyme so they are versed,
But sometimes their subjects are sleazy.
