The Wrekin
from 'The Book of Nonsense' by Edward Lear 1812-1888

There was an Old Man of the Wrekin,
Whose shoes made a horrible creaking;
          But they said, "Tell us whether
          Your shoes are of leather,
Or of what, you Old Man of the Wrekin?"

 
There was an Old Man of the Wrekin . . .
