The One-Eyed Cat
There once was a one-eyed cat
Who was noticed wherever he sat
The folk pointed their fingers at him
And said, “Look, there’s a fighter, my friend,”
For he’d lost the eye while chasing a rat!

A Snoring Man
There once was a man who could snore
So loudly that he woke the neighbors next door.
They grumbled and said,
“I just wish he was dead!”
But he lived till a hundred and four!

Two Young Men and a Weary Maiden
There once were two young men
Who fell in love with the same maiden.
They argued bitterly at the start,
Then they fought for her heart,
Until at last she married their friend!

Ferdinand Van Kessel – The Dance of the Rats, 1690.

The Nudists from Sweden
There once were three women from Sweden
Who dressed like they were from Eden
They walked around in the nude
With a happy naturist attitude
And they got even tans from their freedom!

The Dancing Mouse
There once was a mouse who could dance
And he waltzed by a river in France
His beautiful dance was so slow
Beneath the moon wan and low
That it was like he moved in a trance.

Schrödinger’s Cat
There once was Schrödinger’s cat
Who was quite happy and fat
Although physicists said
He could be both living and dead
The cat was indifferent to that!
