The Limerick

The limerick is a small five line poem, expressing a single thought. It is usually funny with a punch or joke in the last line. In fact, the limerick is to poetry what slapstick is to comedy. The rhyme scheme is ‘a a b b a’ : the first and second lines rhyme with the fifth, while the third and fourth lines rhyme with each other. One reason why the limerick is popular is that almost anyone can try his/her hand at it. May be you could too!


A novice was driving a car When, down the road, his son said “Papa, If you drive at this rate We are bound to be late— Drive faster!” He did, and they are.


Earth’s plan had a hopeful beginning but man spoiled its chances by sinning. We hope that the story, Will end in Earth’s glory But at present the other side’s winning!


There was once a man from Peru Who dreamed he was eating his shoe He woke up with a fright In the middle of the night And found that it was perfectly true!


There was a teacher named Ms Brass Who was blessed with an unruly class They slept and snored And completely ignored Theorems like Pythagoras.
