WORDPLAY post #161

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, December 2018. Today's verses have been published (a few remain under review) at OEDILF.com
The Omnificent English Dictionary ILimerick Form is an online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited poems (Giorgio is proud to have contributed almost 300). 
WORDPLAY LINK: The current post picks up on themes discussed in the earlier post "Sappy Verse". And, as still more verses about trees continue to be formulated after the present post was completed, you will find those as  a later blogpost, likely available in June 2019.  
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
Some of these poems about trees overlap with the theme or singable content of the lyrics blogpost "Delights of the Garden".

By the way, to find more limericks, or any other search target on either of these 2 blogs, use the SEARCH-FUNCTION found at the top of the right-hand margin.
