Limericks - A Quick Introduction
Short poetic verses that are fast and fun to write:

A limerick is a structured poem in which the following

rules apply:

(1)   Rhyme the ends of lines 1,2, and 5.

(2)  Rhyme the ends of lines 3 and 4.

(3)  The specified lines must not rhyme with

each other, meaning, 1, 2, and 5 cannot rhyme

with 3 and 4.

(4)  Line one must introduce a character, and if

you like, a place.

(5)  Line two should tell something about the character.

(6)  Lines 3, and 4 should allow some sort of

action to occur.

(7)  Line 5 should complete the poem, usually

with a funny ending.
