Yes, when I started with a limerick,
Beck gave me the AABB stuff, rhythm, rhyming, et. al.
But he says at the end:


"Ideally five lines AABBA, rhyming, suggestive in content, with
a clever hook in the last line".

Of course back when Reader's Digest had a different one each
week, they were never "suggestive", but then again that was
Reader's Digest.

This is great Peter.

I don't think so, but I'll let Peter explain.

A priest with purity un-mistakable
whom all thought completely unshakable,
opened his missal at mass
and fell right on his ass
for some porn there caught him unplacable.

No, shiny brass shield (or star), lettering and numbers in high relief, with a pin on the back.

June found it most hard to convince
Any girlfriends to date her ex, Vince.
They chose not to cope
With the fact he's a dope,
And June hasn't been friends with them since.

There was a girl with a garden filled with peppermint
Who sold it to improve her financial betterment.
With a peony, rose, and many other herbs
She had quite a showy home out in the 'burbs.
But it was the rabbits who had the most merriment.

Her tent had a charming blue ruffle
That made old-timers fidget and shuffle.
They would gnash, spit, and grumble,
Punch, kick, start up a rumble:
Major scuffle, that duffel kerfuffle.

There was a young lady named Dot
Who engaged in a lewd midnight trot.
Her menses went truant
(With a child pursuant.)
Now to men she replies, "'Drather not."

Saw you were on line, then a limerick, and a good one at that
appeared. Happy Day,Beck!
