HEARSE VERSE: Limericks about the UNTIMELY DEMISE: Feb '18

WORDPLAY post #103
LIMERICK VERSE:  The corresponding poems by Giorgio Coniglio for the most part were originally web-published  at the website of the online humour dictionary OEDILF (the Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form). At the bottom of each slide, a reference number for the dictionary entry is given.
SONGLINK: These black-humour verses in limerick form have been set to music on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", as part of a celebration of Hallowe'en. Check it out here.
