Progress in Poetry: "LIMERRHOIDS" (C-rhyme extension)

 We're hoping with this blogpost to provide you with more understanding and some helpful examples related to a type of  limerick-variation indulged in by the authors. To see the whole spectrum of our efforts, you might want to take the time to review "A Corner of the Poet's World: LIMERICK VARIATIONS".

Note that "limerrhoid" is a neologism, i.e. a concocted word invented by the authors for an extended limerick verse; it has no genuine medical significance, although it sounds as if it should. And, before you proceed to learn about limerrhoids, you might want to review the simpler concept of extended 7-line limericks that result from the incorporation of "extra" pairs of lines with A-or B-rhymes, usually at the end of the stanza. We do also indulge in these less sophisticated entities, and we have collected them for you; click HERE for "Run-On Limericks".   

Authors' Note: an apocryphal tale. The authors offer their apologies to any extant persons in Ireland or elsewhere named Seamus O'Malley, or their descendants.
