NOV 25, a brief saga: the domestic turkey


  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. 

To access the next 'brief saga' on this blog, proceed to... 'avian digestion'. 
To access the most recent previous 'brief saga', back up to 'Dodecanese Islands'.
If you were intrigued by the dual rhyming scheme exhibited in the first stanza of the above poem, you might want to look at our entire collection (a dozen or so other verses) of such 'bi-lyrical verse' by clicking HERE
