Limericks - either named from the Irish town, or as a corruption of Learics from Edward Lear, whose verses had a repeat of the first line for the fifth line, unlike the more modern form.

Who laughed as she swung from the ceiling.
Her mother said "Hey,
You come down right away,
For far too much you are revealing!"
