Two Limericks

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!!

  
  Once an old lady had a chubby tom cat
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!’
  


There lived a woman who loved craft
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!

  4. I find writing limericks tough, but they are most satisfying ... if you can make your readers smile with your words, then nothing can be better.

    And that's exactly what you did here :-) Waiting for more limericks from you.

  10. Limericks are tricky beasts and you've done such a great job! I'm giggling - always the tell-tale sign that the limericks are done just right. :)
