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!
