 Amherst never had a witch
O Coos or of Grafton

But once upon a time
There were three old women.
One wore a small beard And carried a big umbrella.
One stood in the middle Of the road hailing cars.
One drove an old cart All over the town collecting junk.
They were not weird sisters, No relation to one another.
A duly accredited witch I Never heard Amherst ever had But as I say there Were these three old women.
One was prone to appear At the door (not mine!): "I've got my nightgown on, I can stay all night.
" One went to a party At the president's house once Locked herself in the bathroom And gave herself a bath.
One had taught Latin, having Learned it at Mount Holyoke.
Of course Amherst may have Had witches I never knew.
