Title: How To Write a Limerick


1
How To Write a Limerick
  • There once was a man from Nantucket

2
The Finished Product
  • A flea and a fly in a flue
  • Were caught, so what could they do?
  • Said the fly, "Let us flee."
  • "Let us fly," said the flea.
  • So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

3
The Finished Product (2)
  • Note the rhyme scheme (aabba)
  • Note the rhythm, or beats per line (9,9,6,6,9
    roughly)
  • Note that limericks are silly and often rude
  • Note that you are in school, so you may have to
    hold back a tad

4
Another Example
  • There once was a kid named Darren
  • Whose room was surprisingly barren
  • He had no toys
  • Like all normal boys
  • But he did believe in sharing

5
Another Example
  • There was a lass from Australia
  • Who painted her ass like a Dahlia
  • The shape it was fine
  • An the colour divine
  • But the aromawell that was a faihlia
  • HA!

6
How to Write Your Own Limerick
  • Pick a name (a single syllable name is best)
  • Make a list of words that rhyme with that name
    (you could pick a theme here)
  • Now make a list of words that have a new rhyming
    sound (youll need these to end the 3rd and 4th
    lines)
  • Try putting it all together while keeping a
    steady beat

7
What do you have?
  • There once was a guy named Graeme
  • Who though that he was the maan
  • Hed walk into classlate
  • Something Ferrier really did hate
  • But Graeme had to live up to his name

8
Or
  • There once was a teacher named Ferrier
  • Who was tenacious like a terrier
  • DTs hed give if wed skip class
  • Since it might prevent our pass.
  • Is there anything that is much scarier?

9
Your Turn
  • Try to be relatively nice
  • Only pick on people you know can take it
  • And, dont pick that hard
  • GO!
