Hmm, those fit the limerick form only partially. Lines three and four of each stanza are much too long.

There once was a bard from Japan Whose limericks never would scan. When told it was so, He replied, "Yes, I know, But I always try to fit as many words into the last line as I possibly can."

There was a young man from Crewe,
Whose limericks all stopped at line two.

I've never heard the one about Nero.
There was a young fellow from Crewe,
Who mixed a limerick with a Clerihew.
It barely managed to rhyme,
And it didn't quite keep proper time,
And why he did it nobody ever knew
That isn't quite bad enough, is it? Anyone got a good slant rhyme for Clerihew?

Is this the traditional English verb, as heard sometimes in the form "he topped himself"?

Or the newer definition, as heard in BDSM circles?
