Limerick contest entry

the folks from Nantucket are glum
because limericks make them look dumb
their confusion makes sense
'cuz the truth is- they're dense
let's dispense with the pestering thrum

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Limericks are my favourite form because of the strict rules and the need for being conservative..also the bouncy rhythm is perfect for it's usual bawdiness!

Limericks, were one of the first forms of rhyme. Easy to remember and very entertaining. Like this one. ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

I assume you have picked on Nantucket because one of the most famous limericks of all time features that location. I always thought limericks were supposed to be funny (preferably risqué as well). I honestly have to say I don't know what a "pestering thrum" is. I will go and google it.

I'll explain why tough Aussie men do it
(see a croc and decide to pursue it)
as it seems, they are jacked
when they jump on it's back
but the fact is, they're trying to screw it
