Cooking Is A Scam

A Limerick Poem

Cora has a recipe book

She used it all the time to cook

She cooks for hours

Her husband devours

And swiftly turns it into poop

A limerick is a humorous five-line poem with just one stanza. Limericks have an AABBA rhyme scheme and a bouncy rhythm. The subject matter of a limerick is often whimsical and funny.

Limericks all follow the same structure and pattern which sets them apart from other poetic forms and makes them easily identifiable.

  • A limerick consists of five lines arranged in one stanza.
  • The first, second and fifth lines must rhyme and have 7 to 10 syllables.
  • The third and fourth lines must rhyme and only have 5 to 7 syllables.
  • The rhythm of a limerick is anapestic, which means two unstressed syllables are followed by a third stressed syllable.
  • The first, second, and final line each have three anapests—da dum da da dum da da dum.
  • The third and fourth lines have two anapests-—da dum da da dum.

    Funny and too the point. Absurd for sure:)

  • I hope Cora's husband savors every bite Not a crumb goes to waste, they lick their plates with delight Then hopefully they enjoy the rest of their time As they enter their golden years, away from their prime And still look forward to dinner being served at night
