Last week, he had two lessons about a type of poetry called a Limerick. This is one of the most fun types of poetry - not really meant to be insightful or thought-provoking, but just written for fun. It consists of only 5 lines, with lines 1, 2 and 5 rhyming with each other and lines 2 and 3 also rhyming. Here's an example of a limerick (Author unknown):
There once was an old man from Peat
Who had an affection for feet.
He found them so cute
He would not wear a boot
And his tootsies were pretty soon beat!
JJ was required to write his own limerick, so he chose a Star Wars theme (What else!?), and this is what he came up with. He did this completely on his own, with no help from me, except I did correct his spelling:
There once was a man named Darth Vader,
And he was a very big hater.
He wanted more power
So he could devour
All the people he thought was a traitor.
