|Edward Lear||trans. Timothy Adès|
There was an Old Person whose habits, |
Induced him to feed upon Rabbits;
When he'd eaten eighteen, he turned perfectly green,
Upon which he relinquished those habits.
multos solebat sedulus improbo |
glutire Lurco more cuniculos.
ter sorpsit, heu! senos: relinquit
luridus et vomiturus usum.
