Linda wrote to me looking for a poem:
My library director is looking for a children’s song or poem from the early 1900’s full of puns (for a University of New Mexico Instructor). And now I’d like to see it too! These are some of the lines…
Does a ship have eyes when it goes to sea;
Are there springs in the ocean bed?
What kind of vegetable is a policeman’s beet (beat).
These are only a few of the lines and they may not even be together. I don’t even know if these are the exact words, but they are exact or very similar.
Have you ever heard of anything like this? I’ve been trying to figure out where to go to find this. Any help you could give in finding this entire poem would be greatly appreciated.
If anyone is familiar with the words to this poem, please comment below or email me.
