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!!
