There once was an old man and 'tho tis not common | 29-Feb-08

There once was an old man and 'tho tis not common
Yet if said to be true - he was born of a woman

His gait was so odd - Had you seen him you'd burst
For one foot or the other would always go first

What a pity he died - Yet 'tis said that his death
Was occasioned at last by the want of his breath

Lines of a partially remembered poem that was in a school poetry book in the late 1950s.
