    When I was at school in the 1960s we had an arts competition and I read a poem by Ogden Nash. I’m sure it was called ‘The English Language’ and had a line ‘a jumper is a thing you wear and a jumper has to leap’. Unfortunately I can’t find any trace of it anywhere. Can anyone else recall it? If so, where can I find a copy.

Best Poem of Ogden Nash

Adventures Of Isabel

Isabel met an enormous bear,
Isabel, Isabel, didn't care;
The bear was hungry, the bear was ravenous,
The bear's big mouth was cruel and cavernous.
The bear said, Isabel, glad to meet you,
How do, Isabel, now I'll eat you!
Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry.
Isabel didn't scream or scurry.
She washed her hands and she straightened her hair up,
Then Isabel quietly ate the bear up.
Once in a night as black as pitch
Isabel met a wicked old witch.
the witch's face was cross and wrinkled,
The witch's gums with teeth were sprinkled.
Ho, ho, Isabel! the old witch ...

I don't mind eels
Except as meals.
