The blue light special. (Limerick) by Jeremi B. Handrinos
Thank god, I sold the dark one my stock Before Kmart blue lighted his flock For a poop mop and pail 'twas a hell of a sale They even gave Bachus free kale. I just wish that Settle could see My solidarity to our homosexuality Why lord must he jest? As he de-furs my chest While doing his best David Gest.

Up the ladder: granite hearts
Down the ladder: Bobjim, Jimbob

last line should rhyme with the first two.

a limerick, not always, need do that.

Limericks use the distinctive rhyming scheme of a-a-b-b-a, where the first two lines set the scene, the third and fourth lines quickly twist things about, and the fifth line hammers the conclusion. (first, second, and fifth lines are trimeter, third and fourth are dimeter).

as per the guidelines

made to be broken, then eh?
like a blue light special, it defies reality.

No, Accura auditions defy reality.
I was merely working the extra kale
I have laying around with old manelli
records and david gest interviews.

The guidelines? You are are entitled to your opinion, and it is noted, but I am to busy currently to argue your belief in limitations created by guidelines, and if you assume that I do not know, or cannot, write a guidelined limerick than so be it.

Here's my point, if you don't keep to the form of a particular type of poem, then classify it as "freeform". The idea behind a poem following a certain style is the fact that the poet recognizes the constraints and used the constraints to free their creative process. Maintaining a form continues a tradition---and I'm all for doing your own thing--Don't get me wrong. But you can't call a tent a house just because you want to- to hell with an agreed upon format. Go ahead and do your own thing, expirement with rhyme schemes, etc., but doing so slips your poem into a different category. that is my point. your poems have ceased to be limericks as soon as they deviated from the traditional format. I do believe that you are capable of writing a limerick that meets the definition of one. These, however, are misclassified.
