The results of my blue-sky thinking (in tribute to Jack Beauchamp)
That is the best poem I have ever heard. Better even than the one about the man from Nantucket. Does anyone know any lines to that limerick, other than"There once was a man from Nantucket"How does that poem end?
nope - sorry, I've always wondered that myself
One of the earliest known clean versions of the Man from Nantucket motif is this rendition from 1924:There once was a man from Nantucket Who kept all his cash in a bucket. But his daughter, named Nan, Ran away with a man And as for the bucket, Nantucket. Other sequels to this version go as follows:But he followed the pair to Pawtucket, The man and the girl with the bucket; And he said to the man, He was welcome to Nan, But as for the bucket, Pawtucket. Then the pair followed Pa to Manhasset, Where he still held the cash as an asset, But Nan and the man Stole the money and ran, And as for the bucket, Manhasset.
well - that is lovely, thank you for clearing that up!
That is my new favourite poem, just edging out the aforementioned haiku.
