There Was A Young Belle of Old Natchez

There was a young lady whose chin
resembled the point of a pin
so she had it made sharp,
and purchased a harp,
and played several tunes with a grin.
There was an old man who supposed
that the street door was partially closed;
but some very large rats
ate his coats and his hats,
while that futile old gentleman dozed.
A bather whose clothes were strewed
by strong winds that left her quite nude
saw a man come along
and unless I am wrong
you expected the last line to be lewd.
The marriage of poor Kim Kardashian
was krushed like a car in a krashian
her kris kried, not fair!
why kan’t I keep my share?
but Kardashian fell klean outa fashion  -S. Rushdie
There was a young belle of old Natchez
whose garments were always in patchez
when comments arose
on the state of her clothes
she replied, "When Ah itchez, Ah scratchez."  -O. Nash
And let me the canakin clink, clink
and let me the canakin clink
a soldier's a man
a life's but a span
why, then, let a soldier drink.  -Shakespeare, Othello
Too much Chinese is not a good thing.
