False or awkward meter: Asimov was certainly educated enough to understand the correct meter of a limerick, and for the most part he gets them right. When Edward Lear published A Book of Nonsense, in 1846, the final line of his limericks usually repeated the first. In total he wrote or edited more than 500 books over the course of a career than spanned the better half of a century. It’s easy to dismiss such questions as naïve, but the truth is that everyone, poets and poetry lovers included, occasionally entertains the feeling: a gathering annoyance with poetry’s indirection, its saying while not quite saying.

These constructions are miles away from the modern-day “dirty limerick,” the sort one used to encounter with dependable regularity on the unwashed walls of public men’s rooms. Inside these covers you will find a collection of licentious limericks which have been handed down from generation to generation by word of mouth, some of them for over a hundred years.

Lear, who was born in 1812, was all about a bit of fun and wrote his ‘Book of Nonsense’ of 72 limericks in 1846 with exactly that in mind.
