The date of the union. A Limerick.

The date of the union we all saw last night.
They sat Kumbaja to conceal the big fight.
Like preadolescents
Give Valentine presents,
it’s hard to distinguish the left from the right.

    You could use some work on your meter.

    It is good to get some feedback from a real poet. I know that my “Limericks” are not in the real format 8,8,6,6,8, but these are much easier to make since I have two melodies in my head when I write them. I thought if I can sing them and the accents feel right that is good enough. A question. Does anyone have a good melody to go with real Limericks?
