Well as you probably recognize by now I have a lot of varied interests. Writing is possibly my great creative passion nowadays.
One of my vents for this creative passion is to write poetry and one of my favorite forms of poem is the Limerick.
In my HubPages posting to some of my Limericks I talk a little of the history of the Limerick as a Music Hall and Vaudeville joke and talk about the form and meter of the Limerick form.
Limericks are also great stress relievers, because they are created to make you smile, or Blush depending on your style you cannot long remain tense and irritated about day to day irritations.
I hope you will follow the link to my page, maybe leave some comments, and try a few Limericks for yourself. They are fun and quick to write in your head as you wait in the line at the checkout.
