Thank you so much for this great lesson. For the first time I meet limericks in the magazine for kids in my childhood. It was russian translating as well but it was funny even in translating and idea of this poetry was explaned good. Now I am glad to familiar with originals.

Once students tried not to mock
A question on non-rhyme for clock
As a matter of fact
They failed to achieve that
Since engVid said it was dock

I have 9/10, i wrong at number 3 because i choose croak while the answer is dock. when i review i felt the croak is better, please tell me more detail why the correct answer is dock? thank Gill

    I think there’s a mistake in this question. Clearly the sole word that don’t rhyme is “croak”.

Gill could you enlighten my bad phonetic skills ? I was convinced that the right answer at question 3 was croak . It seems my dictionary is convinced the same way .
Merry Christmas

There’s always time for a rhyme,
and rhyming’s not a crime.
Unless you write trash
excusively for cash.
Then you’re nothing but a slime.

Here is the Limerick I’ve coined:

A man is young and bald
He’s always with a wand
when it drops off
kids stare and laugh
A man is young and bald

There was an amazing time
Where my friends and I wanted to dance
But then we didn’t had chance
So we just came outside
To try to have an amazing ride
