Poetry Friday – There was an Old Man who supposed by Edward Lear

From the book: A Book of Nonsense by Edward Lear
I know. More Edward Lear. He’s funny! I promise this will be the last for a little while. Of course now you’d better check out the book!

There was an Old Man who supposed,
that the street door was partially closed;
But some very large rats, ate his coats and his hats,
While that futile old gentleman dozed.

BTW: According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, futile means, “serving no useful purpose : completely ineffective”
