A Rash Stipulation
The daughter of the farrier
Could find no one to marry her,
Because she said she would not wed
A man who could not carry her.
The foolish girl was wrong enough,
And had to wait quite long enough;
For as she sat she grew so fat
That nobody was strong enough.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
A Wasted Journey
Hie to the market
Jenny came trot,
Spilt her buttermilk
Every drop ;every drop
And every dram,
Jenny came home
With an empty can.
