    The barmaid on the paddle steamer Natchez,
    Has britches all covered in patches,
    When asked of the cause,
    Of the state of her drawers,
    She said why I itches I scratches.
    This limerick is sound.
    The other one, which you "prefer," is a travesty of a limerick.

    I already told you. The metrics are all off.

    So what? The number of syllables per line isn't fixed.

    There was a young man from Dundee,
    Who was stung on the neck by a wasp,
    When asked does it hurt,
    He replied not very much,
    It can do it again if it likes.


    Happy?

    Don't you get tired of being wrong?
    Grammar, poetry -- you don't know what you're talking about in either case.

    Limericks are short poems of five lines having rhyme structure AABBA. It is officially described as a form of 'anapestic trimeter'.

    The 'anapest' is a foot of poetic verse consisting of three syllables, the third longer (or accentuated to a greater degree) than the first two: da-da-DA. The word 'anapest' shows it's own metric: anaPEST.

    Lines 1, 2 and 5 of a limerick should ideally consist of three anapests each, concluding with an identical or similar phoneme to create the rhyme.

    Lines 3 and 4 are shorter, constructed of two anapests each and again rhyming with each other with the overall rhyme structure of AABBA.

    THE STRUCTURE OF A LIMERICK


    As you have seen limericks don't have to rhyme or contain a given number of syllables.

    There was a young man from Japan
    Whose Limericks never would scan
    When they asked why
    He said "You see I
    Always try to get as many words in the last line as I possibly can".

    Why can't everyone agree with you?

    Your eyes are so wide open.
