There was a young poet called Dan
Whose poetry just didn't scan.
When asked why 'twas so
He said "I don't know.
But perhaps it's because I always try to fit as many words into the last line as I possibly can"

A personal favourite!

The name of our Admin is Shaun
Coz he looks like a young leprecorn
He tries for decorum
On his CycleChat forum
But his chances are pretty forlorn

(From the poet laureate (designate))
 
Rhythm Thief tried to start a thread
To prove that rhyme wasn't dead
Despite the innuendo of Fnaar
And a few of Keith's !'s
The thread went successfully ahead.

There was a young man from Dundee
Who got stung on the nose by a wasp.
When asked if it hurt
He said "No, not much.
It can do it again if it likes".

Another fave. Right number of syllables, rhythm etc, but no rhyme. It's a cracker! :rolleyes:

A lawyer who came from Llanelli
Had clients whose crimes were quite deathly
He relaxed with some talk
With a lady of York
But his thoughts became rather unhealthy! :rolleyes:

Never let geography get in the way of a rhyme, eh?

For famous poems in limerick style:

I came up with:

Charge of the Light Brigade, Tennyson

Into the valley of death,
shouting and gasping for breath.
But it's no good of course,
when you're riding a horse,
with cannon to right and to left...


As for a forum limerick... er... <goes away to think>
