Did you know that a limerick is a humorous poem with five lines?

The first, second and fifth lines generally have seven to ten syllables and rhyme with each other. The third and fourth lines are shorter and only have five to seven syllables and have to rhyme with each other, too.

Here’s an example:

“There once was a farmer from Leeds,
Who swallowed a packet of seeds.
It soon came to pass,
He was covered with grass,
But has all the tomatoes he needs.”
