Limerick, a popular form of short, humorous verse that is often nonsensical and frequently ribald. It consists of five lines, rhyming aabba, and the dominant metre is anapestic, with two metrical feet in the third and fourth lines and three feet in the others. Encyclopaedia Britannica
A series of (non-acrostic) limericks produced in response to various prompts.
These will appear on Saturday mornings wherever possible.
Let me know what you think.
I think I’ll partake in some leisure.
‘Tis Saturday; time for some pleasure.

My ears rang to ten lords a-leaping;
Their raucousness kept me from sleeping.

To join in their dance,
So what they have sowed they’ll be reaping!
My ex-partner bought me a horse;
A thoroughbred racer of course.
It made me some money,
But you know what’s funny?
‘Twas cited as grounds for divorce!
