An Answer to a Dilemma

Written by: peggy caulfield

A ruler once went out
to measure his paige
and found that the
boy was too short.
"My friend", said the ruler
"You have to grow taller
or they'll throw you out
of my court."
"An inch or two more,
and you'll make it for sure.
We'll have to find
something to do."
The ruler went out
and purchased some bricks,
 and the paige tied them on to his shoes.
