The Pelican

20 Jun

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I’m damned if I see how the helican!

Dixon Lanier Merritt, “The Pelican” 1910

No sbs today, so have some poetry instead. I love that limerick. Limericks and haikus are clearly the best poetries.

    Who ate forty-eight apples and died
    The apples fermented
    Inside the lamented
    And made cider inside her insides
