Hello and Welcome to AJL. We'll give you a welcoming cheer If you follow the rule which is clear; You must post only rhyme In a limerick time As is shown by these verses just here. But should you depart from the norm We'll consider it very bad form; We'll flame you and roast You if prose you must post And if spam we will kick up a storm. Now NOtice the RHYthm and BEAT di DAH di di DAH di di NEAT? Too WIDE of this MARK And we'll BITE like a SHARK di DAH di di DAH di di SWEET? Take care of the pattern of rhyming As well as the meter and timing; Just give it a try, There's no need to be shy; Soon that limerick bell you'll be chiming. And finally maybe you've seen That a lot of our verse isn't clean; But we can and do vary The themes, but be wary; Of old ones we're never too keen.
