Ogden Nash: There was a young man of Herne Bay

“There was a young man of Herne Bay

who was making some fireworks one day:

but he dropped his cigar

in the gunpowder jar.

There was a young man of Herne Bay.”

—Ogden Nash.

“The one-l lama,
He’s a priest.
The two-l llama,
He’s a beast.
And I will bet
A silk pajama
There isn’t any
Three-l lllama.”
Ogden Nash
