The Limerick Project: There was once a poet named Immerick...

I love Limericks--perhaps it's the Irish in me--so when I found an old book filled with Limericks, I bought it: Limerick Lyrics , edited by Stanton Vaughn, published by Sully and Kleinteich, 1906. This little volume contains well over 500 Limericks, all public domain, so, over time, I will post most of them on this site. I haven't felt much like posting regular articles here lately, so these Limericks will fill in the gaps. An opening "double" Limerick from the book: There was once a poet named Immerick, Who worked 40 days on a "Limerick," At the end of which time, He remarked of his rhyme, "There's a limp in the limb of my Limerick." I never could quite see the trick, I never wrote a limerick, I've often tried And gone to bed a-feelin' sick. Also, if I run across any other public domain Limericks, I'll post them here. Ta!
