The Pelican

A wonderful bird is the pelican,

His bill will hold more than his belican,

He can take in his beak

Enough food for a week

But I’m damned if I see how the helican!

  1. My grandmother used to quote this poem to her grandkids and always blushed at “hell he can.” Great pic and thanks for reminding me of my grandmother with this poem.

  2. I received this verse on a post card as a teenager and gasped at the “helican”!
