Limericks are such fun to write and are poetry’s equivalent of a raucous joke. Normally quite rude and accusative, they can be extremely funny. How many of mine reach that pinnacle is for you to judge. It may be – not many!
Many of the wittiest limericks ever written are obscene and scathing but I’ve trodden a different path and rely more on absurdity and innuendo. The best of limericks are masterpieces of contorted language and have a panache that makes you want to shout “Bravo!”
Anyway, I hope you quite like mine.
