Lear was the unquiet possessor of a shameful secret (a gay sensibility) and, to him, a yet more shameful secret (epilepsy).It was customary at the time for limericks to accompany an absurd illustration of the same subject, and for the final line of the limerick to be a variant of the first line ending in the same word, but with slight differences that create a nonsensical, circular effect.

If rhyme and meter are its beams and joists, wordplay is the artfully chiseled balustrade, the pillowed window seat, the foliated mantel frieze, the coordinated hues adorning the interior walls. Something about the whimsical rhyme scheme, the bouncing meter and the sense of tension created in lines 3 and 4 seem to make the limerick especially suitable for the lewd and off-color subject matter. On the other hand, Housman did have the compensation (not given to the rest of us) of knowing he’d composed one of the most heartbreaking tiny poems in the language.

HOT AND BOTHERED - Get dirty with this comedy book of rhymes and limericks that are definitely NSFW, with this hilarious inappropriate children's book for adults!
