And a limerick did appear:
The limerick packs laughs anatomical
Into space that is quite economical.
But the good ones I've seen
So seldom are clean.
And the clean ones are so seldom comical!
And t'was responded to by Marty Weiss:
As an art form the limerick is rated
as being gross and a bit out-dated.
But considerable talent is needed
so proper meter is heeded,
while a chuckle for all is created.
Yes, most may be very obscene,
and far from being "clean."
But if they weren't salacious
why then, goodness gracious,
who'd bother to read them, I mean.
