Intoxicated to the right stage.

Or end up on the papers front page.
What is a Limerick?
A humorous, frequently bawdy, verse of three long and two short lines rhyming aabba, popularized by Edward Lear.
The Structure of a Limerick Poem
A Limerick consists of five lines.
The first line of a limerick poem usually begins with 'There was a....' and ends with a name, person or place.
The last line of a limerick is normally a little farfetched or unusual.
A limerick should have a rhyme scheme of aabba:
This means lines 1,2 and 5 rhyme and lines 3 and 4 rhyme.
Also, lines 1,2 and 5 should have 7 – 10 syllables and lines 3 and 4 should have 5 – 7 syllables.
An example of a Limerick Poem by famous poet Edward Lear
There was an old man with a beard
Who said, 'It is just as I feared,
Two owls and a hen
A lark and a wren
