Words and Nonsense: CLAIRE'S CELERITY (LS)

WORDPLAY post #195

SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym) and Dr. GH, August/September 2019. Today's verses are also under review 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 Gr- 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.

'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. You can review these poetic endeavours by typing '(LS)' in our blog's search engine.

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
EDITOR'S NOTE: By popular demand, as of September 2019,the song-lyrics blog has been changed to a private-reader function. If your email is on Giorgio's list of selected glitterati, you can sign in using your Google password, and enjoy the experience as in the past. ALL OTHERS are welcome to join in, but you will have to leave me a comment here including your email address, and a request to be included.
