If many men knew
What many men know,
If many men went
Where many men go,
If many men did
What many men do,
The world would be better —
I think so; don't you?

If all the seas were one sea,
What a great sea that would be!
And if all the trees were one tree,
What a great tree that would be!
And if all the axes were one axe,
What a great axe that would be!
And if all the men were one man,
What a great man that would be!

And if the great man took the great axe,
And cut down the great tree,
And let it fall into the great sea,
What a splish-splash that would be!

Three wise men of Gotham
Went to sea in a bowl:
And if the bowl had been stronger,
My song would have been longer

The healthy human child will keep
Away from home except to sleep
Were it not for the common cold
Our young we never would behold

A new servant maid named Maria
Had trouble in a lighting the fire.
The wood being green,
She used gasoline
Her position is now much higher

The storm came up so very quick
It couldn't have been quicker
I should have brought my hat along
I should have brought my slicker.
My hair is wet, my feet are wet
I couldn't be much wetter
I feel into a river once
But this is even better

I wish that my room had a floor
I don't care so much for a door
But walking around
Without touching the ground
Is getting to be quite a bore

There was an old owl lived in an oak.
The more he heard the less he spoke.
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Oh, if men were all like that wise bird!

The more we study the more we know.
The more we know the more we forger.
The more we forget the less we know.
The less we know the less we forget.
The less we forget the more we know.
Why study?

We wonder, whether the wether
will weather the weather or whether
the weather the wether will kill.

Duty of the student

Edward Antony

It is the duty of the student
Without exception to be prudent.
If smarter than teacher, tact
Demands that he conceal the fact.

Verses from Alice's Advanture in Wonderland
by Lewis Carrol

Go back / Go top /

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcome little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!

               Fury said to a
                mouse, That he
              met in the
          "Let us
            both go to
             law:  I will
                YOU.  --Come,
                   I'll take no
                    denial; We
                 must have a
              trial:  For
            really this
         morning I've
        to do."
         Said the
           mouse to the
            cur, "Such
              a trial,
                dear Sir,
                 no jury
               or judge,
             would be
            "I'll be
              judge, I'll
                be jury,"
                  old Fury:
                  try the

"You are old, Father William," the young man said,
"And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head -
Do you think, at your age, it is right?"

"In my youth," Father William replied to his son,
"I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again."

"You are old," said the youth, "as I mentioned before,
And have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned back-somersault in at the door -
Pray, what is the reason of that?"

"In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
"I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment - one shilling the box -
Allow me to sell you a couple?"

"You are old," said the youth, "and your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak -
Pray how did you manage to do it?"

"In my youth," said his father, "I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life."

"You are old," said the youth, "one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose -
What made you so awfully clever?"

"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said his father; "don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs!"

`They told me you had been to her,
And mentioned me to him:
She gave me a good character,
But said I could not swim.

He sent them word I had not gone
(We know it to be true):
If she should push the matter on,
What would become of you?

I gave her one, they gave him two,
You gave us three or more;
They all returned from him to you,
Though they were mine before.
If I or she should chance to be
Involved in this affair,
He trusts to you to set them free,
Exactly as we were.

My notion was that you had been
(Before she had this fit)
An obstacle that came between
Him, and ourselves, and it.

Don't let him know she liked them best,
For this must ever be
A secret, kept from all the rest,
Between yourself and me.'
