A type of traditional Russian poetry, is a single quatrain in trochaic tetrameter with an abab or abcb rhyme scheme. Usually humorous, satirical, or ironic in nature, chastushkas are often put to music as well. The rigid, short structure (and, to a lesser degree, the type of humor used) parallels limericks in British culture.

A beautiful girl, oh yes, very smart

Exhibited all her intelligence

Just Imagine, Won a war, without fought

And made me loose my heart to ignorance
