There Once Was A Girl From Limerick

The Omnificent English Dictionary In Limerick Form:

…our goal was to rewrite the entire OED [Oxford English Dictionary] in limerick form. A tall order? Yes, admittedly it was but when we began we had hoped, with your assistance, to have completed this project before our grandchildren were all dead.

I like this one:

The apostrophe‘s often abused:
It gets battered, and bruised, and misused.
On a plural, a blight;
For possessives, just right,
Barring “its”, which leaves people confused.

(Incidently, Limerick is a town in Ireland.)
