Said the octogenarian, Sid,
Who awoke feeling spry as a kid,
"One's as young as one feels;
I can jump, click my heels,
And not fall on my face." But he did.

There was an old lady named Jean,
Who thought late October was keen.
She'd straddle a broom
And run 'round the room,
To celebrate each Halloween.

There lives in our attic young Roger,
A very agreeable lodger.
He never complains,
And we hope he remains
Until Roger our lodger's a codger.

There was a young man so benighted
He never knew when he was slighted.
He would go to a party
And eat just as hearty,
As if he'd been really invited.

A mouse in her room woke Miss Dowd.
She was frightened, it must be allowed.
Soon a happy thought hit her,
To scare off the critter
She sat up in bed and meowed.

Said an envious, erudite ermine,
"There's one thing I cannot determine,
When a dame wears my coat,
She's a person of note;
When I wear it, I'm called a vermin!"

A canny young fisher named Fisher
Once fished from the edge of a fissure.
A fish with a grin
Pulled the fisherman in…
Now they're fishing the fissure for Fisher.

A newspaper man named Fling
Could make 'copy' from any old thing,
But the copy he wrote
Of a five dollar note
Was so good he is now in Sing Sing.

A tutor, who tooted a 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?"

A major, with wonderful force,
Called out in Hyde Park for a horse.
All the flowers looked round,
But no horse could be found,
So he just rhododendron, of course.

There was an old fellow named Green,
Who grew so abnormally lean,
And flat, and compressed,
That his back touched his chest,
And sideways he couldn't be seen.

There was a young lady named Hannah,
Who slipped on a peel of banana.
As she lay on her side,
More stars she espied
Than there are in the Star-Spangled Banner.

The Sultan got sore with his harem,
And invented a scheme for to scare 'em.
He caught him a mouse,
Which he loosed in the house.
The confusion is called harem-scarem.

A nifty young flapper named Jane,
While walking, was caught in the rain.
She ran home, almost flew,
Her complexion did too,
And she reached home exceedingly plain.

There was an old man in a hearse,
Who murmured, "This might have been worse.
Of course the expense
Is simply immense,
But it doesn't come out of my purse."

"There's a train at 4:04," said Miss Jenny.
"Four tickets I'll take… have you any?"
Said the man at the door,
"Not four for 4:04,
For four for 4:04 is too many."

There was a young lady named May,
Who read a love story each day.
"It's funny," she said,
When at last she was wed,
"I'd no notion that life was this way."

A man and his lady-love, Min,
Skated out where the ice was quite thin;
Had a quarrel, no doubt,
For I hear they fell out…
What a blessing they didn't fall in!

Whose appetite simply was unich.
"There's quite nothing like food,"
She contentedly cooed,
As she let out three tucks in her tunic.

There once was a guy named Othello,
A dark, disagreeable fellow;
After croaking his wife,
He then took his own life…
That guy wasn't black, he was yellow!
