Here's a limerick about a yak...
In Africa wandered a yak;
A jaguar jumped up on his back.
Said the yak, with a frown,
"Prithee quick get thee down;
You're almost too heavy, alack!"
A limerick is a five line poem in the form AABBA. It's often humorous or nonsensical verse. The form was popularized by Edward Lear.
Thanks to Jason Pomerantz for the recording.

This limerick can be found in "Harper's Young People" (1880).
