Limerick: Once a lone Sailor sank with his ship


Limerick : Once a lone Sailor who sank wih his ship
 
Once a lone Sailor who sank with his ship
Bargained with a Mermaid through her hare-lip
She would give him a lift
If he’d give her a gift
That’s how mermaids got to wear haïr-clip.
 
                            OR
That’s how mermaids got second hare-lip.
