FMS Photo a day:  In my wardrobe
text type:            Limerick
Sentence type:     Simile
Story:                  Gruffalo

limerick should have:
rhyming structure of AABBA
three 'on-beats' on first two lines, two on next two lines
last line is usually a punchline

simile compares to things using 'as' or 'like'. For example:
The rock cake really was as hard as stone.

A terrible old beast, the gruffalo,
Hated his horrible turned-out toes,
In his wardrobe: no stockings,
Like a lost sheep when out shopping,
He looked for a mouse he could follow.
