An A-a-b-b-a story
Ok, my poetry peeps, before we get to the all important message, do you remember what a limerick is? Let me remind you in the form of a limerick story!
A Limerick's Story
It has a total of five lines
Having A-A-B-B-A rhymes
The first two long
Two short and strong
The last and first two align
Known to be just a bit lude
Dare I say even a tad rude
But in this post
As a good host
Not a one will ever be crude
Edward Lear wrote prose till his end
Scratched his beard with an old quill pen
Then did commence
With poetic nonsense
Dubbed limericks by his literary friends
Now each and every one must know
There's more to this silly word show
Pull up a chair
No need to beware
If you please, I have more to bestow*
*Even though limericks are meant to be 5 lines in full, bear with my poetic license and say a little prayer for Edward Lear since he may have just rolled over in his grave.
Now for the real news of the day!
