Pirate Themed Limerick Contest Update

Blog Posted:4/8/2019 11:53:00 AM

Please pay attention to rhyme and syllable count. Remember limericks have 5 lines total.  Lines, 1, 2 and 5 should all rhyme and have the same number of syllables.  Lines 3 and 4 should rhyme and have the same number of syllables.  I will be checking them on PS or for placement in the contest.  My example is not pirate themed but posted as an example of correct rhyme and syllable counts.

My Example:


Archie and Edith


Archie Bunker made Edith a saint
His attitude made most people faint
His words often cruel
He acted like a fool
But She still loved him with no complaints

Haha, I do the same. I often will compose poems in my head until I get enough that I want to commit to writing it. Because of this, I've gotten more than a few strange looks while silently counting my fingers.

I hope people see your blog, Tania. I enjoyed the Archie Bunker limerick. It was one of my favorite comedies ever on tv!
