Make A Wish (limerick)

Updated on July 5, 2012

A wife wishing at wishing well

When down the well her husband fell

Insults he was dishing

As she heard him swishing

But boy did her wishing work swell

      I am not sure if all limericks have the exact same metre, but you use 88668 in terms of syllables.

      Okay. The first two of your limericks I read today had a common theme. Is there something you need to talk about MH? Love the rhythm of limericks. You put them together very well.
