Time to show your funny side! Write a limerick for me!!

Limericks:

A limerick is a funny little poem containing five lines. The last words of the first, second, and fifth lines rhyme with each other (A) and the last words of the third and fourth lines rhyme with each other so the pattern is AABBA. It should also have a rhythm pattern, like
da DUM da da DUM da da DUM for the first, second, and fifth lines (A)
and da da DUM da da DUM for the third and fourth lines (B). Make sure your limerick has the pattern by reciting it with da for all unaccented or unstressed syllables and DUM for all the accented or stressed syllables.


Here is an example of a limerick:


1. There once was a girl named Cheryl (A)
da DUM da da DUM da da DUM
2. Who dreamed she was in great peril (A)
da DUM da da DUM da da DUM
3. She awoke wtth a fright B)
da da DUM da da DUM
4. When she discovered the sight (B)
da da DUM da da DUM
5. The monster was just a small squirrel. (A)
da DUM da da DUM da da DUM
