Hi everyone, my saint's day is seven days from now! That's right, and to honor San Patricio de Irlandia, I'm holding a Limerick festival!
A limerick, of course, is a five line poem with the rhyming scheme of AABBA. Some famous limericks you might know are Hickory Dickory Dock, and There once was a man from Nantucket... There are more limerick resources here.
Limericks are often naughty, so I won't put any restrictions on what kind of entries you can send. However, if you do send me a bastos limerick, I can't promise it will stay posted.
Please post your original limericks in the comments section of this post, or email them to me if you'd like some peer editing.
Yes, there will be awards. Enter as many times as possible.
ps. What rhymes with "Dubai?" how about "hegemony?"
