Vicar said to the priest one day
Time to kneel down and pray
so he lifted his cassock
Just a well-read punk peasant

Going to church makes you a christian as much as standing in a garage makes you a car!

Time to kneel down and pray
so he lifted his cassock
Kneeled on his hassock
and played with his dick all day
Just a well-read punk peasant

From this website: https://whvvugt.home.xs4all.nl/Archives_TCCMB/Limericks/Structure.html


"The anapest metric must show the following pattern:
(da) da DA da da DA da da DA (da) (da)
(da) da DA da da DA da da DA (da) (da)
(da) da DA da da DA (da)
(da) da DA da da DA (da)
(da) da DA da da DA da da DA (da) (da)
Meaning that you can leave off the syllables in parentheses.
But 1, 2 and 5 should match each other, and 3 and 4 should match.
there ONCE was a GIRL from nanTUCKet        --- leaves off the final 'da'
the LIMerick packs LAUGHS anaTOmical  --- uses all of them

A good example of a limerick:
The limerick packs laughs anatomical
Into space that is quite economical.
But the good ones I've seen
Hardly ever are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical.

Another example with anapests and rhyme highlighted:
There was a young man of Darjeeling
Endowed with such delicate feeling
When he read on the door
"Do not spit on the floor",
He jumped up and then spat on the ceiling!"
