The was a Young Lady of Bute,
Who played on a silver-gilt flute;
She played several jigs,
To her uncle's white pigs,
That amusing Young Lady of Bute.

    Well done limerick. Written for the fun sport of having written something. I cannot see how memorizing it and repeating it would improve my understanding of life or deepen my understanding of mankind (Report) Reply
