A limerick is a funny little poem that contains five lines. The most famous author of limericks was Edward Lear (A Book of Nonsense, 1843). He wrote more than 200 of them.
Limericks have a very special rhythm and rhyme pattern.
The rhyme pattern is [AABBA] and the rhythm pattern [da DUM da da DUM da da DUM].
