Limerickery

A little while ago, Lore Sjoberg published a short list of famous poems rewritten as limericks. Shortly after that, it found its way to Metafilter, and the Metafilter readership stepped up to the plate.

There are some real gems in there.

Like the night, in her beauty she strides
In the darkness her light is my guide
Her allure leaves me spent
But she’s still innocent
(I’m Lord Byron, so trust me: I tried.)

In Xanadu, there was this guy
Built a pleasure dome for which to die
It had rivers to Hades
and mad singing ladies
and then – oh man, I am so high

This makes me think of Nick a bit and smile.
