To honor that Emerald Isle
Try kickin’ it – limerick style
You say it’s too risky?
Drink more of that whiskey
And talk to that lass with the smile

Some limericks really are lewd
With jokes ’bout your mom (in the nude!)
G. Shaw cast aspersions
On sanitized versions
He thought they were crap if not crude

These rhymes are quite Irish, don’t fear
But credit is shared with Ed Lear
That silly ol’ Brit
Made lim’ricks legit
Now ponder whilst sipping green beer…
