Limerick Poetry

(“A limerick is a form of verse, often humorous and sometimes obscene, in five-line, predominantly anapestic meter with a strict rhyme scheme of AABBA, in which the first, second and fifth line rhyme, while the third and fourth lines are shorter and share a different rhyme.”) (source)

(I don’t do obscene, but I’ll try humorous)

There Once Was a Man

There once was a mighty man

Who was richer than a sultan

But squandered his health

In search of more wealth

And ended up a madman.


(This is supposed to be a funny poem, with a bit of honesty. However, I was in the mood to write something lighter!)
