    HA HA!

    Hey Tom...that was funny but it ain't no Limerick!

    The Limerick form is AA...BB...A, with the last "A" being the punch line.

    Your poem was the simple A...B...A...B.

    If you want Limericks, see an Irishman!

    Cheers,
    Hal

    I dropped my Baby in the dirt
    I asked my Baby if it hurt
    And all my Baby said to me...
    Was WAH WAH 1 2 3.

    "An apple sat on the railroad track,
    Feeling blue and cross.
    Around the bend came Number 9,
    Toot, toot! Applesauce!"

    More daring boys would chant this:

    "Jingle bells! Batman smells!
    Robin laid an egg.
    The Batmobile lost a wheel.
    The Joker got away..."

    Then there was this one:

    "I'm Chiquita Banana,
    And I'm here to say,
    If you ever want your teacher
    Out of the way,
    You just peel a banana
    And you slip it on the floor,
    And you watch your teacher
    Go flying out the door!" :eek:

    "A Peanut was sittin' on a railroad track
    Its heart was all a-flutter.
    Along came a great big Choo-ChooTrain,
    Toot Toot! Peanut Butter!"
