(stuff And Nonsense) Limericks Schlimericks - Poem by Janice Windle

Recently I heard a poet say that limericks should not rhyme because there is no rhyme for the word 'limerick'. This seemed flimsy reasoning to me but anyway I set myself to find some rhymes for Limerick. Here are some of the (very silly) results:

(1)
Said a poet composing a limerick
'I'll share an ice cream with my love and give him a lick'
She wrote down her rhyme
And he said 'about time,
And I'd appreciate it if we could take in a flick.'

(2)
A poet composing a Limerick
Said finding a rhyme gave him quite a kick.
He rhymed Clever with Ever
And Weather with Whether
And found that he'd written a Cork
(Er)

(3)
A poet who always wrote limericks
Was known as a terrible cleverdick.
They said that her verse
Was sarcastic and terse
Or silly and smart-arsed - you take your pick!

    Very funny, Janice! I got inspired, too, so I'll post mine as well. Not as good as yours, though! (Report) Reply

    Witty and playful and I like your motive to write these limericks as well :)) You proved that there is a way to cultivate through rhyming even an uncultivatable form! :) (Report) Reply
