BJ’s Shadorma & Beyond – Limerick

The limerick is a humorous (and sometimes bawdy be sure to warn your readers if you take this route) five-line poem, invented in Limerick, Ireland with a nifty meter (there are known variations):

da da Dum da da Dum da da Dum da da for lines 1, 2 and 5

da Dum da da Dum for lines 3 and 4

The rhyme scheme is A – A – B – B – A and for those who prefer syllables it’s a 9/9/6/6/9 syllable scheme …


Two fishermen from South China Sea
They were fishing and sea was choppy
They haven’t caught a fish
And they’re getting anguish
The wives were there and getting angry

The fisherman’s name is Kurdapyo
A henpeck husband of Rosario
They have six kids at home
Their names in palindrome
If they don’t eat, you’ll hear their bellow

His friend’s name is Antonio Santos
Whose wife Rosita is also crossed
He thought it would be fun
To go out with a pun
Engine spews out black cloud of exhaust
