Limericks about Limericks

There was a young poet quite fine,
Whose limericks repeated a line.
Though this was redundant,
Though this was redundant,
His limericks repeated a line.
Carl Muckenhoupt

A newspaper poet for Hearst
Deprived of his reason
By uncontrolled sneezing
Was by phantasmal demons coerced
To write all of his limericks reversed.
Elliott Moreton

A cardiac patient named Fred
Made a limerick up in his head.
But before he had time
To write down the last line
Elliott Moreton

There was a young bard of Japan
Whose limericks never would scan
When they said it was so,
He replied, “Yes, I know,
But I always try to fit as many syllables into the last line as I possibly can.”

There was a young man from Peru
Whose limericks stopped at line two

And presumably by the same author, taking that one step further:

There was a young man from Verdun.
