There was a chap from South Africa
who drank way too much liquor
when asked by his wife -
to end his strife-
he merely sighed and promptly switched to vodka.
There was this fellow from Rabat
who thought himself a rabbit
it took quite a while -
but he got convinced alright
that only in Jamaica can rabbit become Rabat.
There was a girl who had a fancy
that she looked somewhat like Beyoncy
she bought a mirror long -
and deduced she was wrong-
for she looked a lot more like Drew Nancy.
There was once a boy named little Bill
who for some reason could just not sit still.
he hated meadows,
loved Gates and windows
and so caught all kinds of viruses at will.
Hiragana Urahara Kisuke Fuwatara
and Majimoto Yukishimoto Fushihara
two lads from Japan,
were quite surprised to learn
that their names had more syllables than this last line -ra!
There happened to be a lad named Larry
whose skills mathematical were quite scary
at school he couldn't doodle
all he said was Google
now he's gotten so rich - I tell you, it's filthy.
An exquisite limerick must have a twist -
something to pop when least
you expect it
like a bit of wit -
or even at times a disproportionately long, unrhymed and out of meter last line.
Am told a limerick should have Anna Pest.
First of all let me say I have searched East and West
and found that no one sane
can go by that name
Who she is and what she does - is anybody's guess.
