How To Write A Limerick Poem

By definition, a limerick is a light humorous nonsensical or bawdy verse of five anapestic lines usually with the rhyme scheme aabba.

Listed below is a great example of a limerick composed by one of two time Poet of the Month Winner, Faruq Bilal Rasheed

Unfortunate Blissful Predicament

Countless millions like you and me (a)
Have been separated from the true liberty key (a)
Lost in confusion (b)
Laboring under illusion (b)
Only thinking themselves to be free (a)
