Presented below are two Limerick poems*. A 'limerick' is a style of poetry, with five lines and a strict rhyme scheme AABBA. These poems generally have a humorous intent. The first, second and fifth lines are usually longer than the third and fourth.
This is my first attempt towards writing Limerick poems. I hope you will like them! Corrections and suggestions are most welcome!!
It slept all day curled up on a mat
At work, lazily it groaned
When nudged, it moaned
And would cry ‘just last year I killed a rat!’
In cutting, her hands were too deft
Once, she folded papers in style
‘Ohhh! That was my office file’
Cried her man! Banging on her head, a shaft!
