Woodsie, welcome to the games forum and especially this limerick thread (which, I believe is the oldest thread here).

Although it has proper meter and rhyme, your contribution adds one line too many to an already completed limerick. See, Nymtoc completed the limerick in progress and according to how this works, he provided the beginning line to a new limerick: Mozart was precocious, they say.

What you should have done is to add line #2 to Nymtoc's beginning line.

I shall demonstrate.

Mozart was precocious, they say,
Played with many a lass in his day.



You are welcome to add the next line now. :)

Woodsie

oh, boy. How very 'me' to crash a party I know nothing about. :) I'll watch and learn, before I draw more attention to myself. ... so, how would you insert the next line? I'll be good at this, I just know it, I'll read up to catch on....
