Basically, a humorous poem of five lines, bordering sarcasm, written in a tight sequence. Coming to technicalities, the rhyming sequence is AABBA. Lines 1, 2, 5 are longer than the other two. These lines contain three feet of 3 syllables(basically, 9 syllables) and the rest contains two feel of three syllables(so, 6 syllables)
For example,
There was a young rustic named Mallory,
who drew but a very small salary.
When he went to the show,
his purse made him go
to a seat in the uppermost gallery.
