A Limerick for Ginevra

There once was a sofa named Ginny
Whose width was a little bit skinny
Two people could sit
But three wouldn't fit
Unless the three people were mini!

Doing the Dishes

I've been writing some new Limericks, and I'm trying to stay a little closer to the form of Lear's Book of Nonesense to work on my meter. Here's my first attempt!

There once was a sink full of dishes
The supper that caused them? Delicious!
My desire for scouring
Was not overpowering
But cookware cares not of my wishes!
