Those Classicists and their preoccupation with scansion! ;) Ideally, a limerick would have the correct metre all the way through; but as the Moderator says, this is for fun. There is a way to read the current poem aloud and make it scan, by putting emphasis in certain places and pausing in others, so I personally don't perceive a problem with it.

Just as they had feared
And zapped them 'til she heard them crackle.
