SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym) and Dr. GH, July 2019. Most of the verses presented here have been published at OEDILF.com, an online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited limericks. Giorgio can currently point to almost 300 of his submissions accepted for publication (many of them have been reproduced on this blog for your enjoyment).
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. There is some intriguing connection between some of these verses about insects and the themes of the singable lyrics blogpost "Delights of the Garden".
