There once was an e-world named Care2
And all of the people went there to
Build up their causes
and be their own bosses
And discuss whatever they dare to
What is a limerick? It is a short poem, usually funny, often political, made of five lines: the first two have nine syllables, the second two have five syllables, and the fifth line has nine syllables and rhymes with the first two. Say the limerick above over and over about a dozen times, and new limericks about people you know or politicians or others will start to form themselves in your mind.
