Enter your Limerick on one (or more) of the following subjects:

  • Life in Los Angeles
  • The Movies
  • Alarm Clocks
  • Tomato Juice

The traditional form of a Limerick is five lines, with the first, second, and fifth lines all rhyming, and the third and fourth rhyming. The traditional form is also strict that lines 1, 2, and 5 must have three metric feet, while 3 and 4 have two metric feet; further, it's stipulated that the metric feet are anapests (but iambs are occasionally allowed). We're not about rules here, though, so I won't be pedantic about the structure.
