Life's absurdities can make you go mad,

Sometimes leaving you feeling quite sad.

One day you're up high,

The next day you might die,

It's the humor of life that's so rad.

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.
