There Was An Old Man Of Calcutta

There was an old man of Calcutta,
Who perpetually ate bread & butter;
Till a great bit of muffin on which he was stuffing,
Choked that horrid old man of Calcutta.

Excellent attempt to create humor out of simple human follies.
Childish old man ignorant of what was happening to him.....10
