Time for something fun, poetry fans. Put away that solemn face and let your Inner Child out to play by writing a limerick.
In its simplest form, the limerick has five lines. It is lighthearted, sometimes naughty, witty and provokes a laugh. If you want to be a stickler for the form, Wiki says it is “anapestic or amphibrachic meter with a strict rhyme scheme (AABBA)”. Follow that or do your own thing. like I did below.
A Sad Tale
There was a young lad from ‘Bama
With a taste for glitter and glammah
His designer stiletto shoe
Too high for his hair doo
Made him spend the night in the slammah.
