It was the busy hour of four When from a city hardware store Emerged a gentleman who bore 6 screens. 50 feet of garden hose, 1 rake, 1 wheelbarrow. This gentleman with air distraught A big department shop then sought And there invested in, or bought [ 40 yards mosquito netting, 1 hammock, 1 croquet set. His business next our hero leads [Unto a place which retails seeds It takes to satisfy his needs 24 packages assorted annuals, 10 rose bushes, 1 peck mixed bulbs. The sun was low behind a hill When he got to Lonelyville And then his wife in accents shrill Pointed out that he'd forgotten the sprinkling can, the pruning shears, and the lawnmower.
