It was actually aimed at a poet on this site who posted a bunch of limerickoids. H
Very good Limerick. Interestingly, the first time I read this, my 'internal metronome' was a little off and the syllables, when I read them, didn't actually fit. I even started writing a comment praising your irony!
Funny, Sonny! .............
