As We Were Going To St Ives

As we were going to St Ives

we didn’t meet any man

with seven wives!

But we did meet

seven ducks on a ledge

and seven ducks in the water.

The ducks on the ledge were

your typical “ducks in a row.”

The ducks in the water?

Well, I really don’t know.



There was

no man

no wives

no sacks



or otherwise.


All I can surmise

about St Ives

was just those

seven ducks on the ledge

seven in the water.

And that bloke…

is no bloody

St Ives Children’s Nursery Rhyme!
