Limerick usage has included many different facets of expression and writing. The bawdy limerick - that is, the ribald verse used mostly for entertainment - is the limerick style that has gained the greatest attention over time. Other applications of the limerick form, however, have included children's poetry, commercial advertising, religious poetry, commemoration of noteworthy events, political commentary, romantic poetry, and even general communication.
The verses presented in this collection incorporate a particular theme that has been popular in the field of the entertainment-style limerick - that being the theme of catastrophe. Catastrophic limericks generally incorporate some form of destruction, injury or death.
In each limerick presented in this collection, the "catastrophe" is human demise. In coining the term Grimmericks, I have defined a specific category of limericks which describes some facet or element of this grand and final event ... the event to which we will all someday arise.
