Limerick (14th century English) 1. There once was a girl from Madrid Who inspired the famous El Cid. She gave him her heart Which he foolishly scarred, So she shot him straight through the head. 2. There was a young man from Quebec Who hanged himself by the neck. His wife, he abhorred, plus he was so bored that his life was a miserable wreck.
