The Return of Kit, Kt
The Return of Kit, Kt.
There was a gay fellow called Parr,
Who returned with a merry rah-rah,
Saying, "Why look so glum?
In the land where I come
The people are worse off by far, ha, ha!"
There was a gay monarch of Spain,
Who made a quick exit by train.
It gave him a pain
That he could not remain—
And it's plain he would fain reign again.
'Tis said by a chappie called Forbes
That each civil servant absorbs
Far more than he should,
And so for his good
He's had their salaries so reduced that it's about as hard for them to make ends meet as it would be to make this line scan and rime.
