Details

Write an original limerick. Simple enough right? I would like to see solid stanzas, and rhymes. Poetic licence is encouraged. Multiple stanzas are also a great concept, but not required. Must be poems not submitted on the cafe before the start date of the contest.

If you feel really froggy, you are welcome to try a double limerick. Here are examples of both:

WHAT is a LIMERICK?
Jonathan Dean

The limerick is a fun five-line poem,
Enjoyed by all those that know �em,
With two rhymes up top,
Then one last to stop,
And two in between, not below �em


DOUBLE LIMERICK
Jonathan Bryant Dean

You can write a poem bout most any clich�,
The subject can be of any known topic,
Even about dance moves as people sach�,
In the East, the West, or in climes so tropic,
Many poems are writ,
By poets young and old,
With a quick enough wit,
These stories are told,
And of subjects theres an endless cach�,
Unless, topics, elude your eyes, Myopic!

Note that the double limerick rhymes on alternating lines.

Good Luck!!
