^ Not quite right NDF - if you look at the first post in the thread it sort of explains what limericks are. They are five lines long with a rhyme scheme of AABBA. They also have a rhythm which goes:

Di da diddy da diddy da
Di da diddy da diddy da
Di da diddy da
Di da diddy da
Di da diddy da diddy da

Anyway it's time to start a new one:

One day in the middle of June

^ jerry your rhyme is great! But unfortunately it doesn't quite fit the Limericks format so I have provided an alternative last line. The limerick should be 5 lines long and should follow the rhyme scheme AABBA
