Yes, the limericks about Titus were good, although the way the name of
the title character scans, I'm surprised not to see some sentiment for a
higgledy-piggledy (aka double dactyl):

Higgledy Piggeldy
Titus Andronicus
Wanted to cook up a Mother's Day meal.
He made pie to die for,
Heard diners all cry, "More!"
Anthropophagic'ly
Didn't use veal.

I need a better double dactyl word in the sixth line, so I hope someone
will suggest something.
