The story could be true but it's a stretch.

A sixain’s a bit of a stretch
A limerick’s five lines just a sketch
But to turn a six line
Into a limerick is fine –
Just get one line lopped off by Jack Ketch!

Nothing like carrying a theme through, is there ...

I sit here on a riverbank to compose a ribald rhyme
The lush greenery distracts the riparian scene sublime
Stupid nature just grows
Mindlessly grows and grows
Then I remember that I am as well a part of the slime

THE VOYEUR

Her bright blue eyes and golden tress,
Soft undulations ’neath her dress,
He looks upon, with gaze so bold -
And waits to see her drapes unfold

Limerick is not a strict rule - and never has bin, culley. I have broken out into sixtrains and iambic pentameteters in the past, if the sentimeent of the topic demands it. This is the first time I've used a Khayyamic quatrain, but.
So there! :)-
