AUG 9, limerick variations: ka-pow! (terminal exclamation!)
Ka-pow! (variant kerpow!): comic-book type interjection for a noise emitted when a blow is landed in a fight (often involving a super-hero)
Line 6: occasionally used sixth line of a limerick, unheard of in the early days of the modality, finding some currency among modern authors. See our poem 'Addendum-icitis'.
The limericks written by Edward Lear and his contemporaries a century ago often included repetition of the poem's key word at the end of the final line.
