There was a young lady from Gwent
who found that she came as she went.
She didn’t know why,
that as she passed by,
her back was incredibly bent.
She went to the doctors to ask.
“Lost cause” he said, “Go buy a cask.
Drink plenty of sherry
until you are merry,
sit back in the sun and just bask.”
She died and was buried at noon.
Some said it was awfully soon.
Some others thought “Why,
when I look at the sky,
can I see both the sun and the moon?”
Of course, it is perfectly plain
that we often see ducks in the rain,
and the lady from Gwent,
who came as she went,
was horribly bent and insane!
