Assignment: Write a Limerick

I once had to write a dumb poem
So I took and worked on it at home
But the limerick was tough
So I gave up that stuff
And that’s why this last line doesn’t rhyme.

Had to laugh! Hahaha! I love it! 5 stars to (Insert your favorite Hogwarts house here______) (C'mon, you know it's Ravenclaw!) How does one write a limerick anyway? Is it anything like a hiaku?

Ha! i don't like limericks unless they are meta-limericks--limericks about limericks are awesome if done right. great meter too. I have a piece in the poetry section called "cliche:" it's not a limerick but i was really pleased with the meter when i wrote it. you might like it, so if you want, check it out.

...Thanks for the compliment.

 

Do you mean 'stalk' as in, read-all-my-stuff? Or as in, trying-to-find-my-address?

Fortunately, he had quite a sense of humor- otherwise I wouldn't have tried it. :)

This is clever- Your writing about how hard it is to write a limerick! In the process, you created one! Great job!
