Chick's Own

Chick's Own

The Horse.

I know two things about the horse
And one of them is rather coarse.

Anon.: 20th Cent.


There was a young man who said "Damn!"
It appears to me now that I am
Just a being that moves
In predestinate grooves—
Not a bus not a bus, but a tram."

Maurice Hare.


Declined to wear a bowler,
Expressing the view that it was gammon.
To talk of serving God and mammon.

—Edmund Clerihew Bentley.

There was an old party of Lyme
Who married three wives at one time.
When asked: "Why the third?"
He replied: "One's absurd.
And bigamy, sir, is a crime."
