I shoot the Hippopotamus
With bullets made of platinum,
It's true I've got no shirts to wear;
It's true my butcher's bill is due;
...
What though I cannot meet my bills?
What though I suffer toothache's ills?
What though I swallow countless pills?
Roll on, thou ball, roll on!
Through pathless realms of Space
Who, or why, or which, or what,
Is the Ahkond of Swat?
Sir Eglamour, that worthy knight,
He took his sword and went to fight;
...
Hi yih, yippity-yap, merrily I flow,
O I may be an old foul river but I have plenty of go.
I may be smelly and I may be old,
Rough in my pebbles, reedy in my pools,
...
her nose was long and cold,
And her shoes were full of feet.
There is a Canon which confines
A Rhymed Octosyllabic Curse
If written in Iambic Verse
To fifty lines.
