Tinker to Baltimore

Once came a smart tinker to Baltimore He peddled his pots near a dry-goods store He hawked them all in one day For whatever folks would pay Then hurriedly left and came back with more.

Your title really pulled my leg hard: I was expecting a parody of 'Tinkers to Evers to Chance' (the legendary double-play combo of the Cubs back about 110 years ago). lol. Onward to Baltimore... :) gw

I wish I had thought of that before you did, gw, but, of course, I'm not old enough to remember that far back!

I remember the hawkers down on Fleet Street, a horse drawn cart with fruit and veggies calling out back in the day.Am I dating myself?

A bit, I think, but it's nice to know you could relate. Thanks for your read and your comment.
