O Limerick

I enjoyed this as a challenge. And let me pass along the challenge to you, gentle reader: can you write a Limerick in Portuguese? Whack it in the comments and show me what you’ve got. All entrants win a free subscription to Luso Premium. That’s like ordinary Luso except you are allowed to read it out loud to yourself in a Michael Caine voice.

Um Limerick é um poema humorístico com 5 linhas. A primeira, a segunda e a quinta linhas rimam umas com as outras e a quarta rima com a terceira. Desafiei-me escrever um Limerick em português. Desculpem – acho que contem asneiras…

Havia um jovem do Porto
Cujo pénis era bastante torto
Mijou de maneira errada
Salpicou a tomada
Por isso o homem é morto*

*Apparently “é um homem morto” sounds more natural but I liked the rhythm better like this so I’ve left it.
