Great entry regarding the limerick, Wendy. I shall have to look into some Lear limericks. As you say below, it's an art form to get it just right. Congrats on your win with your pleiades ~ John

Yes, there's a real art to this poetic form. To get the rhythmic flow, rhyme and punchline laugh into five lines isn't easy. Thanks for the feedback,Alexis.

Thanks, Jan. It's a difficult form to master isn't it but I've read some on this site which have raised a smile and occasionally an audible laugh. For me, the rhythm and rhyme have to have a smooth flow for it to have an effect.
