Good, no worries for you.

I mean a wedding ring.
She only cares about an expensive wedding ring and getting married, doesn't care about anything else. So he better just have money, haha. (she is shallow, materialistic)

well done!!

(except for the shot at eastsir....ouch!)

hmmm the cadence of the limerick?

I guess... basically it has 5 lines.
A rhyming couplet of 8-9 syllables
A quick couplet of half that length
Then one line of 8-9 syllables that rhymes with the first couplet again.
They're almost always rude and never serious.
A riot is an ugly thing.... and I think it's just about time we had one.

Too long is: She says "Ouch!"

Too short is: She says "Did you put it in yet?"

I want to make a poem too!

Hmm... let me think. Firstly, I wonder if our Chinese readers know the pattern of these poems. Limericks (type of poem) have a certain rhythm to them and may sound ...


Excerpt from site:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limerick_(poetry)



A limerick is a five-line poem with a strict form, originally popularized in English by Edward Lear. Limericks are frequently witty or humorous, and sometimes obscene with humorous intent.

The following example of a limerick is of anonymous origin.

The limerick packs laughs anatomical
Into space that is quite economical,
But the good ones I've seen
So seldom are clean,
And the clean ones so seldom are comical.

Gershon Legman, who compiled the largest and most scholarly anthology, held that the true limerick, as a folk form, is always obscene, and cites (x-xi) similar opinions by Arnold Bennett and George Bernard Shaw, describing the clean limerick as a periodic fad and object of magazine contests, rarely rising above mediocrity. That is to say, from a folkloric point of view, the form is essentially transgressive; violation of taboo is part of its function.
