In this blog post, Louise explains a little bit about limericks.
A limerick is a short poem with just five lines. It’s thought that limericks first appeared in the UK in the early 18th century. They are usually quite funny and are meant to make people laugh. With just 5 lines, they are easy to write and follow a simple pattern:
Here is an example of a limerick:
There once was a man from Wales
And every day he used to eat snails
They made him quite sick
And he used a toothpick
To get their shells from under his nails.
As you can see, it doesn’t matter if the limerick doesn’t quite make sense. The main thing is that it rhymes and is funny.
