    1. Temptation, temptation, temptation
    2. Is what comes of coy, covert flirtation

    Your scansion in your contribution to the last one leaves a little to be desired if I may say so, bluemagic.

    1. Beth found BDSM so boring
    2. Her Doms all complained of her snoring
    :
    3. She even slept through
    4. An enema too
    5. And of the bruises her bum was ignoring


    NOW it scans! (What is one expected to do quite, when the number of syllables per line does not conform to standard symmetry?)

    Lymerick mayhem??

    [Aside]: a little question for all participants:- aren't we supposed to be sticking to the standard rhythm pattern for a limerick
    (as explained by the thread starter long, long ago now)? Viz:-

    1. DEE (DUM') DUM' DEE DUM' DUM' DEE DUM'( DUM') (DEE)
    2 DEE DUM' DEE DUM' DUM' DEE DUM' (DEE)
    3 DEE DUM' DEE DUM' DUM'
    4. DEE DUM' DEE DUM' DUM'
    5 DEE (DUM') DUM' DEE DUM' DUM' DEE DUM' (DUM') (DEE)

    Wherein above:-
    DEE represents the non-stressed syllables, DUM the stressed syllables; and ( ) - that is; in brackets: optional additional (stressed or non-stressed and as indicated above) syllables
    (which you can only put in in the places indicated by the above format)

    Otherwise, I fear we shall have a recipe for limerick mayhem! here!]



    1. Sultry Sally could score without trying
    2. Despite all her mean tricks and lying
    "You only live twice - or so it seems: one life for yourself - and one for your dreams".

    [@bluemagic: No single, unchallenged standard rhythm pattern exists. There is no governing body to issue one with an official stamp.. Rinoa has supplied a pattern, of course, in post #1. Since then, in almost 5000 posts, dozens of honourable members have departed from the OP's version. Rather a lot of those attempts have been somewhat wide of the mark; but many are close enough to pass muster. The same can be said of the limericks published in several successful collections.

    Your line 2, above, doesn't fit either your own pattern or the OP.s (there's an extra unstressed syllable in the middle). But it seems to run well enough to pass muster: so shall we just proceed?]

    3. She always got laid

    HenryIX: I do not agree with you that my second line above violates the rhythm pattern I have discussed. Neither do I agree that some of the dubiously irregular limericks which have been on here of recent do 'pass muster' - unless we are going to say that there are no rules at all and you can have 'anything you like'. I note that some time ago, you yourself pointed out (politely of course) to a poster that a second line offered would not work - as we cannot mix iambic and troche in the same limerick. So, I assume that you too acknowledge that there must, indeed, be some kind of rules here??
    However, I think we shall have to simply respectfully agree to differ.
    The main thing is that we continue to have fun. Does one not agree?

    bluemagic - I don't mean to put you off but the third line does not appear to make sense. It goes from a goat to a bull. Perhaps if the line read "When A bull nearly gored her" that introduces the bull and allows the goat to remain. I shall change it for the next line but do change it back if you disagree.

    As you wish, Alice. Nothing to fall out over here.

    Agreed! And the final line, of course, will rhyme with 'Andes' and 'randies'.
