THE OLD MAN AND THE LORD

There was a certain very, very, old man of Stamford,

who was asked to appear before a very great lord,

his heart then beat very wildly,

and he jittered around madly,

he tumbled and died, and in heaven met the greatest lord.

    Reminds me of the title The Old Man and the Sea. The same effect was obtained in the end...he still got to meet his Lord. Gwendolen
