He panicked when the ticking rang, see,
Assured that a bomb it would be,
He knocked down the shed,
And killed the shell dead,
But the can was as empty as he.
Okay, so this was my first attempt at writing a Limerick. The Script Club at my school worked on haikus and limericks for a session. This was the result of that.
Plus two other haikus which I think will go up eventually.
Eventually being the key word there.
Oh, and if anyone’s confused, he knocked down the shed because the “bomb” landed in there. That wasn’t very clear.
Anyway, thanks for reading! Be sure to tell me what you thought, and if you have any tips for me to improve the Limerick!
