Limerick:There Was An Old Lady Of Prague - Poem by Edward Lear

There was an Old Lady of Prague,
Whose language was horribly vague;
When they said, 'Are these caps?'
She answered, 'Perhaps!'
That oracular Lady of Prague.

    The last line of the poem looks like a patchwork. First four lines are quite amusing. Thanks. (Report) Reply
