Magpie Tales #209 Silly Limerick

The Sleeping Gypsy  by  Henri Rousseau  1897


There once was a gypsy Romanoff
Who always was nodding off
 He woke in a dither
Some lion stole his zither
While he was made into Stroganoff

Funny one! Maybe he should have stayed awake and played and "soothed the savage beast" as some people misquote.
