       Classic humorous and funny poems using whimsy. Humourosly quaint and fanciful, especially in an amusing way.


There was an old man of Tobago,
Who lived upon rice, gruel and sago;
    Till, much to his bliss,
    His physician said this:
"To a leg, sir, of mutton, you may go."

There was an old soldier of Bister,
Went walking one day with his sister;
    When a cow, at one poke,
    Tossed her into an oak,
Before the old gentleman missed her.

There was a young man of St. Kitts
Who was very much troubled with fits;
    The eclipse of the moon
    Threw him into a swoon,
When he tumbled and broke into bits.

There was an old man who said, "Gee!
I can't multiply seven by three!
    Though fourteen seems plenty,
    It might come to twenty,--
I haven't the slightest idee!"

There was an old man in a pie,
Who said, "I must fly! I must fly!"
    When they said, "You can't do it!"
    He replied that he knew it,
But he had to get out of that pie!

A Tutor who tooted the flute
Tried to teach two young tooters to toot;
    Said the two to the Tutor,
    "Is it harder to toot, or
To tutor two tooters to toot?"
