This is for limericks experts

Here is a limerick I just created. Limericks are nothing but fun Giving your thought a happy run Let them run till you are done As many a heart you’ll have won Reading your thoughts one by one As you see in this limerick all lines are rhyming with each other, although normally the first, second and third rhyme with each other and the second and fourth are paired for rhyming. Does this limerick break the rule?

For my first try I have checked the rules. First of all a limerick must be funny. Lines 1 -2 and 5 must have seven to ten syllables. The third and fourth lines only have to have five to seven syllables, and have to rhyme with each other.

@allknowing I know that mine was silly and I am not sure I respected the rules, I do not pretend to be good in writing poems and limericks, it was a childish attempt, just to have fun. I do not pretend to be an expert and I think that my poetry stops there.
