A Limerick About Limericks?! Far out!

Someone asked me today for the rules* for writing limericks, so I decided to respond in limerick form:

Limericks are five lines long,

Shorter than most of our songs.

Lines 5, 1, and 2

Rhyme, and so do

The middle two lines (if not wrong!).



  • NOTE: This meta-limerick does not address the rhythm patterns of the limerick.
