    There was a young man from Limerick
    Who didn’t know how to write Limericks
    So instead he wrote a Haiku
    And did that incorrectly.
    Boom. Your welcome.

    Should you find yourself sat in a cab
    En route to a city so drab
    That its only claim to fame
    Is a poem of the same name
    Write your own; just give it a stab

    Well at least here the prize that they proffer
    Is worth chasing them up on their offer
    Unlike Broadsheet’s voucher;
    should I prove I’m no sloucher?
    And try adding this loot to my coffer.
