Writing the limerick,

Isn’t a magical trick…

Casting a spell

If written well,

Needs a punchline to stick!

Rather like making bread,

Lim’ricks require a head…

Keyed to five lines

That humor refines,

Limericks’ butter and bread.

Subjects never run out,

Some sarcastic, no doubt…

Carefully write

Not out of spite,

Crafting a great shout out!*

Jonathan Caswell

*Limericks are usually bawdy…as a Christian, I avoid those!
