SURF VERSE: Limericks About BEACH RE-ENGINEERING

WORDPLAY post #172
SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, June. 2019. Today's verses have also been published  at OEDILF.coman online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited limericks. The accumulation stage of this project is not being undertaken with celerity (proceeding alphabetically, the open range from Aa- though Gn- is now almost fully covered) - it is estimated that the final date of completion will be 2063.
For those (including the editor) who have forgotten this obscure word's meaning, the word celerity is defined by my dictionary as meaning speed, rapidity or quickness of motion.

SONGLINK: For readers who like poetry set to music: You can find lots of singable limerick-medleys and other song formats on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", such as this recent post

EVEN MORE IMMERSIBLE BIRD-VERSE: Illustrated Limericks About WATERFOWL

WORDPLAY POST #171

PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, July 2019, a continuation of blogpost #169 and blogpost #170. 


 The Omnificent English Dictionary ILimerick Form is an online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited poems, including three hundred or so by Giorgio. The present collection of verses, recently submitted to OEDILF and still under review, represents a bird-brained continuation of earlier work on the same subject. 

Readers who enjoy our collections of verses describing the natural world around them with illustrative images and informative text, might also enjoy these recent blog-offerings...

Verses about Geysers, Sep '18
Verses about Frogs, Jan '19
Verses about Trees, Mar '19
Verses about Reptiles, May '19
Verses about Waterfowl (part #1), May '19

PHOTOS: Unless otherwise noted (by pale blue acknowledgment plaques), embedded photographs were taken with and transferred from Giorgio's cellphone. Following submission of the poems to OEDILF, the slides collages we present here were formatted using Powerpoint software on a vintage 2000-era PC computer. No photographic subjects were reimbursed for participating in this undertaking, and OEDILF has no involvement in the pictorial portion of this presentation. 

SONGLINK: For those readers who like poetry set to music: You can find lots of singable limerick-medleys and other song formats on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", such as this recent post. And, if you would like to sing some of the poetry about birds presented here, you can find some of the earlier verses in singable format (with ukulele chords displayed) by following this link
