There Was An Old Man On The Border

Poem By Edward Lear

There was an old man on the Border,
Who lived in the utmost disorder;
He danced with the cat, and made tea in his hat,
Which vexed all the folks on the Border.

Sy d Barre t songwriter nipped the lyric in his song Octopus. the madcap laughs at the man in the border/
Creation of fun out of simple things is in itself an art form. Thanks for sharing it here.
