Topsyturvey-World

by William Brighty Rands


If the butterfly courted the bee,

And the owl the porcupine;

If churches were built in the sea,

And three times one was nine;

If the pony rode his master,

If the buttercups ate the cows,

If the cat had the dire disaster

To be worried, sir, by the mouse;

If mamma, sir, sold the baby

To a gipsy for half-a-crown;

If a gentleman, sir, was a lady-

The world would be Upside-Down!

If any or all of these wonders

Should ever come about,

I should not consider them blunders,

For I should be Inside-Out!
