His funeral

That he planned his funeral is factual
And being a prankster quite actual
He prerecorded his voice
So when we kneeled on the joist
He said, "Hi there! Don't I look natural."

Unfortunately this does not follow the conventions of a limerick. First of all, you only have near-rhymes. "factual" and "actual" don't rhyme with "natural." And neither does "voice" rhyme properly with "joist." Second, your rhyme scheme is off. The meter for a limerick is two stressed syllables, followed by a stressed syllable. that he PLANNED his FUN er al is FAC tu al Notice how you have an extra unstressed syllable between "funeral is factual". Same with L4.

I love the irony. It's great that you could put three rhymes at the end of such a short piece.
