A lil limerick for you all

So, one of my assigned tasks this week to accomplish was to write a limerick. Well, first I had to research what exactly a limerick is. It sounded familiar from some long ago English class, but I certainly had forgotten. I found out it is a five line poem with an A-A-B-B-A rhyme scheme. I had actually written a five line poem last week with that rhyme scheme without even knowing it was a limerick! Anyway, here is this week's limerick. I must say, I love what I came up with.

I once had a very large cat.
He was large because he was fat.
He was fat because he loved to eat.
His favorite thing was a treat.
And all day long, there he sat.

Hope you all enjoy it, too!


  1. poem about a cat??? Boooooring. Should be about me instead :) except no fat comments - ha

  2. A limerick for Mandy (with no fat comments):

    I once had a friend named Mandy.
    She was sweet like candy.
    Her dog was called Lil Georgia.
    And she never woulda bored ya!
    And her car smelled sunny AND sandy.

  6. I once had a friend named Henny.
    She was brighter than a brand new penny.
