There Was An Old Man In A Tree
(12 May 1812 – 29 January 1888 / London / England)

There Was An Old Man In A Tree

There was an Old Man in a tree,
Who was horribly bored by a bee.
When they said "Does it buzz?"
He replied "Yes, it does!
It's a regular brute of a bee!"

This is so sad that beauty of life is bored of an old man by a bee. This poem transfers high sentiment. This Limerick gives us unlimited fun...10
Good limerick. Might be pointing out to something else.
Another joyously quirky limerick courtesy of Edward Lear!
Familiarity indeed breeds contempt!
