My Cat


I have a cat.
It ate my hat.
That cat is fat.
Did't think that cat could do that.
Now that cat climbed my bat.
I threw the bat with the cat.
That cat just keeps coming back.
How do I get rid of that cat?
Maybe if I get a rat.
Then the cat can't come back because I have a rat.
Darn the rat got trapped by the cat.
No more rat and I still have the cat!

This isn't actually a limerick. The limerick rhyme scheme is AABBA, typically in five-line anapestic meter (two unstressed syllables followed by a stressed syllable.) If you re-write it so that it actually fits the form, it has the potential to be a funny poem.

This limerick is really funny. I have two cats so I know what it feels like to want to get rid of them and they keep coming back.
