Problem
Problem:

Is there any sense in poems of nonsense?



A limerick is a kind of a witty, humorous, or nonsense verse with a strict rhyme scheme (AABBA).


There was an Old Man of Peru,

Who dreamt he was eating his shoe.He awoke in the night

In a terrible fright

And found it was perfectly true!



A rhyme scheme is the pattern of rhyme between lines of a poem or song. It is usually referred to by using letters to indicate which lines rhyme.


Bid me to weep, and I will weepA

While I have eyes to see; B

And having none, and yet I will keep A

A heart to weep for thee. B

There was a Young Lady of Niger, A

Who smiled as she rode on a tiger; A

They returned from the ride B

With the Lady inside, B

And the smile on the face of the tigerA


The standard form of a limerick is a stanza of five lines, with the first, second and fifth usually rhyming with one another and having three feet of three syllables each; and the shorter third and fourth lines also rhyming with each other, but having only two feet of three syllables.


Example with the first, second and fifth usually rhyming with one another and having three :

Every method to e-co-no-mize.

"I save gallons of ink

By simply not dotting my i's"
