AUG 26, a brief saga: Mar-a-lago (the dacha)






















   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 proceed 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 multi-verse poem is shown here on the slide with its first verse. 

To access the most recent previous 'brief saga', back up to 'Grandpa Greg's Advanced Grammar: pluralia tantum'. 

  If you have enjoyed these verses on the theme of American political satire, you might like to proceed to view other items in our collection including:
