Incidents In The Life Of My Uncle Arly

Rating: 3.1

O my aged Uncle Arly!
Sitting on a heap of Barley
Thro' the silent hours of night,
Close beside a leafy thicket:
On his nose there was a Cricket,
In his hat a Railway-ticket
(But his shoes were far too tight).

Long ago, in youth, he squander'd
All his goods away, and wander'd

To the Tinskoop-hills afar.

Enjoyed the funny poem of Edward Lear. Here is my feedback: Once there was the aged Uncle Arly; Who was sitting on the heap of Barley; Fermenting to make some beer, For himself and also for Mr Lear, They got drunk and cursed Mr Charlie.
