I believe it may be impossible to take a limerick seriously. The name implies silliness. Still, I think it is more than the form that made Nantucket famous.
I understand that this is not a true limerick because it consists of several stanzas strung together. You are free to read the first one as the limerick and see the other verses as commentary in verse.
I had the impression a limerick was only one stanza long but obviously i was wrong (why the hell does the saying you learn something new every day always creep into my head its so over used lol) anyways i found this very lively and active for the reader, it read fast and fun like, thanks for sharing this with us. Hope to hear from you soon. have a wonderful day amber
really enjoyed this, well done, nice to have a giggle when there can be so much doom and gloom around. Difficult to critique, I would only add or take away certain words in a few places, but that is only due to how I read. It's first rate, nice one.
oh my! that went throguh the rating fast ! wow, completely and utterly... brilliant! i love it! haha,my what a hoot! i think that this is one of the best clean limericks i've heard, and yes this one IS clean compared to others i know...
this makes the idea of having a snake as a pet quite appealng ha ha ha you certainly went to town on this...naughy you. and what a story...i was expecting five lines but you gave us so much more...what a treat lol it is really four for the price of one
this is very cool. i love it ha ha ha Greame and I have little limerick battles at night but he always stomps me into the ground. wonderfully funny with sexual tones in it. truly a great piece of work here. from start to finsh it is entertaining. I freaking love this one ha ha
