LIMERICK VARIATIONS




















C-RHYME EXTENSION


Poet laureate, Seamie O'Malley

Wrote his opus in Limerick Valley,

Quote recorded in history:

"I've found, there's no mystery,"

A- and B-rhymes are boring

(New formats exploring).

An adventure worth mention

Is C-rhyme extension,"

Cry around which disciples would rally.


Dr.G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022
Author's Note:  Well, yes. This verse does go on at length (including a D-rhyme extension), but in a highly regulated fashion that would have been applauded by the famed lyrical seer and his followers. Support by a cadre of Irish disciples had materialized initially, but to O'Malley's bitter disappointment, was unsustained globally.


EPITOMY

To epitomize what could be boring:

Poets' website where pedants are storing

Half a million short verses,

Non-diverse. Mouthing curses,

Readers leave, or are silent, or snoring.

 Dr G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 202


And, we have a complete post (10 verses or so) devoted to limericks with dual rhyme schemes!, as introduced here ...
