The limerick form of whimsical poetic musings became popular in 1845 after Edward Lear published his “Book of Nonsense” containing 212 limericks. A true limerick consists of 39 syllables arranged across five lines. The syllable pattern across the lines is 9-9-6-6-9. The rhyming pattern is standard at a-a-b-b-a. A limerick was originally intended to be a humorous musing on some aspect of usually obscene subject matter. The first line will reference a person and place, and the final line traditionally reflects a humorous conclusion applied to the person introduced in the opening line. Source: Reference.com
