RHYME

FIRST THEY HIRED ME,
THEN THEY FIRED ME,
THEN BY GOLLY I LEFT MY WIFE AND 23 CHILDREN TO DIE OF STARVATION
AND THOUGH IT WAS RIGHT. {THOUGHT?}

Submitter comment: THIS IS SAID WHILE WALKING, WITH THE BEAT COINCIDING WITH THE PACE
OF THE WALK. THE INDIVIDUAL SAYS THE FIRST WORK OF THE RHYME
WHILE STEPPING DOWN WITH HIS LEFT FOOT, AND FINISHES SO THAT WHEN
HE SAYS "RIGHT," HE LANDS ON HIS RIGHT FOOT.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; FARMINGTON ; TOLD IN
