WORDPLAY post #198 

"The Kiss"
ée Rodin, Paris 
SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, September 2019. 

Today's verses have also been web-published at OEDILF.coman online humor dictionary that has accumulated over 100,000 carefully edited limericks. Thanks are due to OEDILF contributing-editor MikeAq who kindly permitted links to some of his verses in the present collection (proceed to the bottom of the post to see those).
As limerick-writers are often tempted to dive into the baser spheres of human life, the dictionary has a 'curtained room', accessible only to online members, presumably flagging that the designated verses may not be suitable for children. On his own recognizance, Giorgio has selected the following verses from OEDILF's 'Curtained Room', based on their  requiring only 'light curtaining', and taken the risk of offending some readers by publishing them on this otherwise sedate, and arguably family-oriented blog.

WARNING: The following verses may not be suitable for all ages. Those under 15 or over 85 are advised to read the following content only with the permission and supervision of an adult family member.  

Further discussion of anglo-Greek and anglo-Latin influences on spoken and written English are discussed here.

Further poetic musings on canoeing can be found on an earlier blogpost.


There may be some debate as to whether the above verse, less explicit than some others, might need to be 'curtained'. And with this teaser, perhaps I can induce you to review the verses on an older but extensively reworked blogpost entitled "Limericks about Classic Palindromes".

BONUS: Some selected 'curtained' verses from my author-colleagues at OEDILF
 (the Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form)
