Silly Billy

 

Silly Billy rode to town

on his tiny pony

for a girl whom he may crown

as his one and only.

 

Round and round and up and down,

every girl was phony.

When they saw him they would frown,

none would be his crony

 

till he met this funny clown

who was thin and bony.

She had a charm that could drown

his world that was stony.

I remember reading a poem about "Silly Billy" from a pasta inspired poet friend of mine. It must be a thing from "across the pond".
Fun read and I agree with Ricochet about reading this to a tune.
