A Literary Misnomer-Day 3-It’s a Limerick

I’m embarrassed, abashed and chagrined for I did pick                                                                                 For two days past to pen a literary form so quick

What was I thinking,  I publicly labelled and to the blogosphere told                                    I would daily for several consecutive create an ode  

I thank a friend for setting me right, for the form is actually limerick!

The world is coming undone and things are going to pot                                                 When anyone anywhere can write something, give it a shot                                                            For those professional writers and grammarians it must be all they can bear            When unrefined folk like me go on a tear                                                                                  And decide willy nilly to keyboard a rhyme                                                                           With ignorance to form and established verse                                                                        And the nerve! to post a blog for the world to see                                                                 You think you’d take a moment to get it right they mime                                                      And vow if they meet me to be very terse                                                                                 For it’s obvious this woman doesn’t know a literary q from a p

(Ode)

I think I got the rhyming scheme down for each form now.  If it’s not right, I’d appreciate a course correction from someone out there.  One of the references said that limericks are often obscene.  I seem to be digging myself in deeper every day.

  1. A girl from home
    Wrote a poem
    …A lovely written limerick
    about money and a little ……….

  2. An Ottawa woman, they say
    Tried to blog about things of her day
    Her poems would rhyme
    But wouldn’t keep time
    Her metre won’t meet her half way.
