A Limerick is a five-line poem with the following rhyme form: a a b b a. The rhythm is just as important in a Limerick as the rhyme. Another common characteristic of many Limericks is that the first line ends with the name of a place, although this is not strictly necessary. Most importantly, Limericks are meant to be funny. They often contain hyperbole, onomatopoeia (naming a thing or action by a vocal imitation of the sound associated with it, e.g. "buzz" or "hiss"), idioms, puns, and other figurative devices. You see, the Limerick can be quite musical! The last line of a good Limerick contains the PUNCH LINE or "heart of the joke."

Here's an example:
There once was a banshee called Anno,
Who was learning to play the piano.
She was doomed to fail,
And started to wail -
And now she’s a world class soprano!
