Lucky Dip – Saturday Mix, 27 February 2021

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 27 February 2021!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Limerick. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Limerick?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

Limerick

A Limerick is a rhymed humorous or nonsense poem of five lines which originated in Limerick, Ireland. The Limerick has a set rhyme scheme of : a-a-b-b-a with a syllable structure of: 9-9-6-6-9. The rhythm of the poem should go as follows: Lines 1, 2, 5: weak, weak, STRONG, weak, weak, STRONG, weak, weak, STRONG, weak, weak Lines 3, 4: weak, weak, STRONG, weak, weak, STRONG, weak, weak This is the most commonly heard first line of a limerick: “There once was a man from Nantucket.”

Example

The Man From Aruba

There once was a man from Aruba,
Whose favorite hobby was scuba.
Every day he would wish,
He could spear a big fish.
But settled instead for canned tuna.
