Celebrate Limerick Day

Limerick Day is celebrated May 12th each year. Limericks were popularized by Edward Lear and named for the Irish city of, funnily enough, Limerick. To celebrate Limerick Day, let’s enjoy a few office supply limericks!

Celebrate Limerick Day

Limerick poems follow an AABBA pattern and have a distinctive meter. This means that in the 5 line poem the first two lines and the last line rhyme with one another, and the B lines rhyme. The meter goes as follows…

A: da da DUM da da DUM da da DUM
A: da da DUM da da DUM da da DUM
B: da da DUM da da DUM
B: da da DUM da da DUM
A: da da DUM da da DUM da da DUM

Limericks are often childish and fun, with a bit of nonsense thrown in for good measure. Let’s see how well our favorite office supplies inspire poetic limerick genius.

There once was a girl who was bright
All she wanted in life was to write
With a yellow wooden friend
Her days she would spend
Penciling bad limericks to her hearts delight

Our staff meeting is happening now
I need to finish the agendas somehow
I’ll attach with a stapler
or some adhesive tape-ler
So my boss doesn’t have a full on cow

I was late to the office today
I kept wishing it was Saturday
but, alas, it is not
so brew me a pot
of the best coffee from here to Bombay
