Shama's Dilemma limerick

There once was a girl named Shama
Who wondered about her karma
As a poet her rhymes
Were always out of time
To most her terza rima was trauma

The meter requirements are driving me bonkers, Linda. I gave more significance to syllable counts. Each to his own. However, I just love your limerick and hope you do well in Deb's latest contest! I always found limericks to be a source of entertainment. Now they seem more like a chore. Yours is very funny and I would rank it high! Love, Carolyn

hmmm & even your way you have 10 syllables and you want to strive for the same as line one and two, though the meter is MORE important than the syllable count! Don't be so wedded to the words terza rima?
