Authors' Note: The mental disorder in which sufferers (including the author) feel endlessly compelled to write limericks might be dubbed limerrhea, hyperlimerosis, or more simply, limerick addiction
    Volunteer writers and editors toil away for OEDILF, the online humour dictionary, but the project is not likely to be finished until 2070. 
    





Authors' Note:    Our blog, 'Edifying Nonsense', promotes several forms of creative nonsense, including collections of humorous and definitional poems overlapping with those submitted to OEDILF, an online collaborative writing-site. (parenthetically, accepted OEDILFian verses boldface the attributed key word that is ‘defined’ in the poem. On occasion, the partly completed collections are offered to OEDILFian editor-colleagues as a 'temporary Author's Note', to provide context for the cooperative editing task of rehashing a verse that is still in tentative status.


     











Authors' Note: 'Creative writing' is a term that has been applied to fiction in prose, but seems to have omitted from its purview fictional poetry accounts, such as those honored on this blog.  



Authors' NoteIn the above limerick verse, neologisms include:
dehiscitude (reminiscent of 'dehiscence') 
remissitude (reminiscent of being 'remiss' in the sense of 'culpable') 
wound dehiscence, or 'failure of primary (wound) closure', is a feared surgical complication, found mostly in the province of abdominal surgeons and trauma surgeons; it seldom affects the professional practice of psychiatrists or limericists.



Authors' Note: This verse bypasses the requirement at OEDILF for 'definition', in favor of the more reasonable targets of 'exemplification' and 'entertainment'. The author points out hesitatingly that 17 prior 'balk-verses' in OEDILF's data-base (as of 2022) altogether provide minimal definition of the many meanings of this puzzling word.

American Satire: A TERM OF ENDIREMENT #4


This post provides a follow-up to 
"AMERICAN SATIRE (A Term of Endirement) #1"(Note that this first collection of poems gives helpful suggestions on how to SING these intriguing lyrics.)
"AMERICAN SATIRE (A Term of Endirement) #2"
"AMERICAN SATIRE (A Term of Endirement) #3"









Authors' Note:  The fiefdoms of major American political parties are frequently identified on political posters and maps by color coding, Republicans being depicted as red, and Democrats as blue. The relatively conservative southern state of Georgia had traditionally voted Republican in federal presidential elections for several decades until, in November 2020, Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by a relatively small increment of twelve thousand votes statewide, a difference of less than 1%.

  After the 2020 election, the transcript of a phone call between the President and his lawyers and Georgia's Secretary of State (the state official in charge of elections) was obtained by the media. In the phone call, the federal parties derided the state's procedures, suggesting that a significant number of Democrat votes had been cast by dead persons. They asked that this unfair situation be redressed by "finding" just enough previously unrecorded Red votes to alter the outcome.



Authors' NoteThe above verse reflects the workings of democracy as perceived by a vocal minority, sometimes labeled 'conspiracy theorists', following the 2020 US presidential election. See also grift.




Authors' Note: U.S. Senator J. Hawley of Missouri played a major role in the constitutional events at the Washington Capitol on January 6, 2021, the day of the insurection directed at the accession of joe Biden to the presidency. 






Authors' Note:  In the United States, the Inauguration, a ceremony to mark the commencement of the four-year term of a new president takes place on the January 20th following the November election.
