Limerick: Once a Firebrand Fräulein from the Black Forest


Limerick : Once a Firebrand Fräulein from the Black Forest
 
 Once a Firebrand Fräulein from the Black Forest
In winter went out to cut wood sans vest
In fact sans Lederhose
Nor even horse fire hose
So she got fired on wood with zest.
 
                  or
So she got fired for good in jest.
 
                  or
So she got fired by Crook in earnest.
 
                  or
So she got fired in crook by Earnest.
 
                  or
So she got fired with Earnest in the nest.
 
(and so on and on…)
