@Novalis 1421 Limerics Your eight lined limerick reminded me of the earliest ones that were seven or eight limes long. There was a fat lady from Eye Who felt she was likely to die; But for fear that once dead She would not be well-fed, She gulped down a pig, a cow, a sheep, twelve buns, a seven-layer cake, four cups of coffee, and a green apple pie. You may observe the rhyming of the first, second and last line. Also the third and fourth The fifth and sixth. Yours is a brainy one with each two lines rhyming.
