WHY ANIMALS, WHY

Why doesn't the lion laugh, the cow doesn't cry... The snake doesn't peep, the hawk does not swim. Nothing, nothing ... The vulture does not snore, the bull doesn't gorge, the zebra doesn't sing... The dog doesn't neigh, the cat doesn't tap... How tedious is this animal no joy, no joke... Alligator is always alligator, elephant always elephant is... animals, me too I'm an animal... let me play with you, teach you...!

If I may, with all due respect ask, why is this published as a limerick? A limerick has five lines with a definite syllable count. I'm just asking for better understanding of your thinking.

When you enter your poem, there is a place to check "humor" in the subject area. Hope that helps. I enjoy reading your work.

Surely you are right... It IS not limerick, bit we do not have poem type for humor, you can observe that i have written Limerick ffve Lines AND definite syllable count. Others publish wrongly too. i know that It is not limerick... ok i AM GOING to change type, do not worry judge... salute, alkas
