Queer!

Illustration:  “Quixote Quicksight.”  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.  McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

“Quixote Quicksight.”

Quixote Quicksight, quiz’d a queerish quidbox,

A queerish quidbox Quixote Quicksight quizzed;

If Quixote Quicksight quiz’d a queerish quidbox,

Where’s the queerish quidbox Quixote Quicksight quiz’d?

Because he can work no faster.

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater,

Had a wife and couldn’t keep her;

He put her in a pumpkin shell,

And then he kept her very well.

 

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater,

Had another, and didn’t love her;

Peter learned to read and spell,

And then he loved her very well.

“A Long Tail’d Pig.”

A long-tail’d pig, or a short-tail’d pig,

Or a pig with e’er a tail,

A sow-pig, or a boar pig,

Or a pig with a cruly tail.

Eat Nothing At All!

Illustration:  There Was An Old Woman.  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.  McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

“There Was An Old Woman.”

There was an old woman

Called Nothing-at-all,

Who rejoiced in a dwelling

Exceedingly small:

A man stretched his mouth

To its utmost extent,

And down at one gulp

House and old woman went.
