When I was growing up, my Mum used to recite a poem. She had forgotten the rest of it, so I never learnt all of it. But I’m curious to see if I can find the rest of it somewhere. A cursory look on the internet hasn’t found it. (I have found another contradictory poem though).
Each line is a contradiction.
Ladies and Gentlemen! Bugs and Fleas!
Come to the circus! If you please.
Admission is free; pay at the door.
Bring your own seat; sit on the floor.
The first live act is a stuffed elephant
eating cooked bananas raw;
The second act is a female man
eating vinegar off a fork.
And then it continued, with ten acts in all at the circus.
Right, webiverse. Does anyone know the rest of the poem?
