A limerick is a five line poem popularized by Edward Lear. On this his birthday, take some time to write your own limerick today. Here is an example to get you started.Â .Â .Â
There once were some rhymes they called limericks
Repeated by smart men and dimwits
They’re easy to make
A real piece of cake
Until you get to the last line
And many limericksÂ can beÂ quite colorful. Remember – There once was a man from Nantucket.Â .Â .Â ??
