There was an Old Person of Buda, 22 February 2009

Whose conduct grew ruder and ruder,
Till at last with a hammer
They silenced his clamour,
By smashing that Person of Buda.

There was an Old Man of the Isles, 20 February 2009

Whose face was pervaded with smiles;
He sung “High dum diddle,”
And played on the fiddle,
That amiable man of the Isles.
