Coagulation Verse: TO CLOT, OR NOT TO CLOT

WORDPLAY post #178

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, July 2019. Thoughts about blood-clotting disorders and their treatment have been incited by current health issues affecting family and friends. 
Today's verses, having been recently submitted, are under review at OEDILF.com, an online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited limericks. Giorgio can currently point to some 220 submissions accepted for publication (many of them have been reproduced on this blog for your enjoyment). Links to other medically-related posts here at "Edifying Nonsense" are given at the bottom of this post.
