I have a new family motto:
“Spend every night getting blotto!”
Farewell My Liver!
Me, sober? Never!
I'd rather drop dead on the spoto.

Oh dear, my poor liver has died

Oh dear, my poor liver has died
Not only that, but my eyeballs are fried
In some olive oil
While me brain’s brought to a boil

That's what I'm eating tonight as I toil.

The sky is all hazy, no stars do I see

As I step outside for a nightly wee...
As I face the cool breeze

As I face the cool breeze
With my pants to me knees

To Hell with the neighbors; I'm free.

But in winter when it's really chilly

But in winter when it's really chilly
And the frost even collects on my 'willy'
At forty below
My ‘nads start to glow

Feeling like a Silly Billy

He’s a penal system reformer
Big Brother "watches" him
his future looks grim

Spare anything else?

And some braces, for safety, you see ?

I set out to walk to some far distant place

Oh, no! There are now TWO limericks in progress!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I set out to walk to some far distant place
Where I could bury some of these excess syllables without any trace
Although, usually, I try to stick to the limerick's anapaestic trimeter

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Had to get the thread back on track!
And give the offenders a whack!

I mean, I'm not necessarily a limericks purists, but there are rules and guidelines to follow and feature

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

So the last line of the above is incorrect ?

Should it be, generally, eight syllables in the first, second and fifth line. And five in lines three and four ?
