Limerick

2015 10 02 "Limerick" #OW

Limerick is a specialized type of poem with the A-A-B-B-A rhyming structure.

Limerick looks like an old man from Nantucket.

Limerick sounds like a sing-songy rhyme of 5 lines.

What's in a Limerick?
The town or the pome (sic)
If you find yourself in Nantucket
With only the clothes on your back and a bucket...
Would you be willing to do that trick?
