Henry Ward Beecher Limerick - O.W. Holmes

The Reverend Henry Ward Beecher,
Called a hen an elegant creature,
The hen, pleased with that,
Laid an egg in his hat,
And thus did the hen reward Beecher.
(Oliver Wendell Holmes)

  1. A post-Christmas limerick ...

    Launch into a diet or burst!
    I'm sorry to say, not the first.
    For most of the week
    I try hard to be sleek
    With Chewsdays and Friedays the worst.
