Take five minutes to write about whatever’s on your mind today. Unleash your emotions on paper!

Now, try your hand at writing a highly structured poem called a limerick.
The general structure is this:
5 lines (1st, 2nd, and 5th are longer, 3rd and 4th are shorter)
Ryhme Scheme: aabba
Often humorous and bawdy (but don’t have to be)
Here’s one I wrote.
It’s not easy. Take a stab at it. If you like it, post it on your blog!
