MYTH and REALITY!

Post by goldenrod » Thu Jun 21, 2012 11:49 am

Traditional:

Ride a Cock-horse
To Banbury Cross.
To see a fine lady
Upon a white horse.
Rings on her fingers
Bells on her toes.
She shall have music
Wherever she goes!

AND

The Reality!
.
Ride a Cock-horse
to Banbury Cross.
Cursing and raging
because you've got lost!

The map of the Shire that
you bought for a groat,
showed a bridge,
where there was none
so, you had to hire a boat!

That big bag of oats
you bought for your Cock-horse,
was full of the "rust"
So you dumped it, of course!

As for the fine Lady
upon a white horse.
An old hag on a clothes-rack,
more accurate the course!

The rings on her fingers
were through that hag's nose
and she'll have
rhinitis wherever she goes!
