It drove the poet round the bend,
his limericks just wouldn't end.
They'd go well for a time,
but come the fourth line....


It drove the poet round the bend,
his limericks just wouldn't end.
They had the precision of a clock,
but then they would suddenly stop...


It drove the poet round the bend,
his limericks just wouldn't end.
It really wasn't his fault,
they just came to a halt...


...fuck it!

There once was a man named Armstrong
Who was known for writing heavy songs
Or did he blast through space?
Or was it he who won that bike race?
Perhaps I've remembered him wrong...

Once a tiny rabbit wished to fly
When a bird over its head passed by
"I have no wings; it is so sad."
It sighed and concluded,
"It is better not to wish for the sea."

There was a young man from Australia
Who sailed in the Sydney Regalia
While climbing the rigging
He thought about quitting
As the boat headed East for Venezuela

Yeah I'm a teen,
but what does that really mean?
Well I certainly don't crush candy
and at times I get a little bit randy.
But there's very little of the world I've seen.

See, because this is a limerick,
I have to be a little sick.
Spouting off ideas that make no sense.
The only thing to say in my defence:
"Well you can just suck a big, fat brick."

Alas, every poem needs an end,
and we delete, scratch, scribble, make amends.
Never knowing when to stop,
Or what content we need to drop.
What's that? Oh, excuse me, I have a fake meeting to attend...

The word "limerick" is just way too cool to not be mentioned as often as possible, I mean just take a second and look at it. Also, crudeness in limericks is as essential as a rhyming couplet in a Shakespearean sonnet.
