I just completed a fellow bloggers challenge to write a limerick. The word we had to use was Lie. The trick is that you can use the word anywhere in the limerick, you don’t need to use it as a word at the end of a line.
Limericks are five line rhymes, made famous I think by Edward Lear the poet. The format is two longer lines that rhyme at the end… Mine were Joe and Toe today, then two shorter lines. I ended mine with blame and lame. Then a final, fifth line that rhymes with the ends of the first two lines, where I used the word Know.
Sometimes limericks don’t rhyme because the last words look similar but don’t sound similar, you have to know the pronunciation.
