In celebration of St. Patricks Day, Boston.com asked readers to send in their urban limericks. The poems had to follow the traditional five-line Irish form and be related to Boston. After receiving scores of submissions over the past three weeks, a Boston.com panel chose its favorite entries.
Here are the Top 10 (including one two-part epic limerick) with topics ranging from Bernie Madoff to Sarah Palin to City Hall Plaza. They are ordered by who currently is in the lead. At the end, tell us which one you liked best to determine the winner. And keep those rhymes coming!
