The Absolutely Abstemious Ass,
Who, or why, or which, or _what_, Is the Akond of SWAT?

Once Mr. Daddy Long-legs,
The Dolomphious Duck,
When awful darkness and silence reign
Said the Duck to the Kangaroo,
The Enthusiastic Elephant,
The Excellent Double-extra XX
The Fizzgiggious Fish,
The Good-natured Grey Gull,
The Hasty Higgeldipiggledy Hen,
The Inventive Indian,
The Judicious Jubilant Jay,
They went to sea in a sieve, they did;
The Kicking Kangaroo,
The Lively Learned Lobster,
The Melodious Meritorious Mouse,
There lived an old man in the Kingdom of Tess,
The Nutcrackers sate by a plate on the table;
The Nutritious Newt,
The Obsequious Ornamental Ostrich,
The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea
King and Queen of the Pelicans we;
The Perpendicular Purple Polly,
The Pobble who has no toes
On the top of the Crumpetty Tree
The Queer Querulous Quail,
The Rural Runcible Raven,
The Scroobious Snake,
Said the Table to the Chair,
The Tumultuous Tom-tommy Tortoise,
Two old Bachelors were living in one house;
The Umbrageous Umbrella-maker,
The Visibly Vicious Vulture,
The Worrying Whizzing Wasp,
The Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo,
The Zigzag Zealous Zebra,
