DEC 3, a brief saga: avian digestion

















The author's poem "Gizzard" explains the origin of the peculiar name for that organ. Author psheil discusses the role of the proventriculus in relation to the gizzard HERE.

We still have a long way to go on this educational journey before reaching SheilaB's poem 'Cloaca'. Stay tuned!

  For the purpose of this blog, a 'brief saga' is defined as a poem, usually narrative, but occasionally expository, that tell its story in at least 15 lines. Most commonly, the format involves three stanzas in limerick form, constituting a single submission to the online humor site 'Omnificent English Dictionary iLimerick Form'. On the OEDILF site, rigorous standards for content and format are involved in a collaborative editing process that may take several weeks to over a year. 

  Generally, OEDILF has not been enormously welcoming of multi-verse submissions, but Giorgio Coniglio has persisted, and the OEDILF number for each accepted multiverse poem is shown here on the slide with its first verse.
