WALRUS and CARPENTER, lowcountry version (LS)

WORDPLAY post #131
SATIRE COMPOSED: DrGH and Giorgio Coniglio, March 2018. 
'LS' = Limerick Saga. On this blog, we will be using this abbreviation to designate poems whose verses, each in limerick form (5-line AABBA stanzas), number three or more.  These lengthier poetic endeavours give more room for the development of relevant details, and the inclusion of further elements of plot and character, when compared with the single-verse form. Readers are asked to note that for a limerick writer, 15 lines of poetry seems like a lot. 
  The Omnificent English Dictionary ILimerick Form is an online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 105,000 carefully edited single-stanza poems, including three hundred or so by Giorgio. The present saga, related to a very specific topic is related to other work on environmental issues in South Carolina, a portion of the continent dear to the writer's heart. In general, OEDILF is not terribly keen on the submission of multiverse limericks; the third verse dealing with oyster clusters as a culinary specialty has successfully completed the editing process. 

  
SONGLINK: For those readers who like poetry set to music: You can find lots of singable limerick-medleys on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", such as this recent post. The saga of "Walrus and Carpenter" has also been set to pop music, as web-published in February 2018 and displayed here.

HOLESOME VERSE: Limericks about CLOTHING MOTHS

WORDPLAY post #132
SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, June 2018. The involved verses have been published at OEDILF.com, the online humour dictionary. OEDILF currently has a repertoire of over 100,000 carefully edited verses, with 'defined words' spanning the alphabet from A- as far as Go- (estimated date of completion: after 2070). 
SONGLINK: The underlying concepts for these verses have also been adapted and set to music (in this case the theme used was 'the Mexican Hat Dance'. See the blogpost "Clothing Moth Hat-Dance" on our lyrics blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE".
