OCT 26, limerick variations: C-rhyme disciples



Poet laureate, Seamie O'Malley

Wrote his opus in Limerick Valley,

Quote recorded in history:

"I've found, there's no mystery,"

A- and B-rhymes are boring

(New formats exploring).

An adventure worth mention

Is C-rhyme extension,"

Cry around which disciples would rally.

Dr.G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022

Author's Note:  Well, yes. This verse does go on at length (including a D-rhyme extension), but in a highly regulated fashion that would have been applauded by the famed lyrical seer and his followers. Support by a cadre of Irish disciples had materialized initially, but to O'Malley's bitter disappointment, was unsustained globally.
 You can find lots of other verses on this blog under the rubric "Poets' Corner".  Most of them are in limerick format, and have been subjected to the editing process at OEDILF, the Online English Dictionary in Limerick Form. To access all the others, type the phrase Poets Corner into the searchline on this blogpost (at the top of the righthand navigation column).
