Limerick: Once A Mincing Mrs.


Once a mincing Mrs. from Mississippi*
Went to a bank for a fiddle-d-dee
But her girdle got stuck
And the "SS" came unstuck
That's why Missis ends as a double P..

· * No aspersions cast on Mississippians here;
the term refers to the Paleozoic era in North America,
following the Devonian and preceding the Pennsylvanian,
of course.

Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
