Limericks are the funniest well-known poetic forms. No one knows for sure where the name “limerick” came from, but most people assume it is related to the county of Limerick, in Ireland.The reason limericks are so fun is because they are short, rhyming, funny, and have a bouncy rhythm that makes them easy to memorize.


Roses are red
Violets are blue
These rhymes make no sense
But sound good they do

Worn out cliché
Guess some like it this way
If the words fit the puzzle
I will put on my muzzle

Unless you think like a limerick
Say what you want to speak
Not what you want me to read
