( CHILDREN'S POEM) THE HISTORY OF RHYME

                THE HISTORY OF RHYME

BACK IN THE DAYS OF OLD,
THE STORY OF RHYME WAS TOLD,
THE KINGS AND QUEENS,
HELD COURT IT SEEMS.

GREAT PARTIES WERE GIVEN,
THE HORSE AND WAGON WERE DRIVEN,
EVERYONE WANTED TO SEE,
HOW FUNNY THE JESTER COULD BE.

KEEPING TIME,
SINGING HIS RHYME,
HE SANG OF SOMMER DREAMS,
JUST TO PLEASE THE KING AND QUEEN.

HE WORE A FUNNY HAT,
HE SAT DOWN ON A YELLOW CAT,
GOT UP TO CHASE A RAT,
AND HIT A BALL WITH A GREAT BIG BAT.

THEN  LESTER,
        THE JESTER.
TOSSED AWAY HIS HAT,
AND SAID, '' WELL, THATS THE END OF THAT.

THEN SOMETIME LATER IT SEEMS,
         CAME THE WITCHES, AND THEY WERE MEAN.
FOR YOU SEE,
         THEY ALWAYS TRAVEL AS THREE,
EAGERLY STIRING IN A BLACK POT,
THEY KEEP IT BOILING HOT,
         MAKING A SPELL OR TWO,
RHYMING OVER THEIR BREW.
ONE EYE BALL,
    ONE CANDLE, MAKE IT TALL,
         ADD A BIT OF BITTER RUM,
              AND STIR UNTIL IT'S  DONE.
MAKE SOME MORE RHYME,
WHILE WE'RE KILLING TIME,
               MAKE A LITTLE FUN,
                 AND ENJOY IT, EVERYONE.
