There once was a man with only one shoe,
Who prided himself that it was so blue,
Then someone took it away
And made him quite sad that day,
Not for the shoe but for loss of his blue!
Note: This is my first attempt at a lemrick. A limerick is a humorous poem consisting of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines must have seven to ten syllables while rhyming and having the same verbal rhythm. The third and fourth lines only have to have five to seven syllables, and have to rhyme with each other and have the same rhythm
