‘I knew a funny little man

His name was Rhubarb Ted;

They called him that because he wore

Rhubarb on his head.

I’d grown so used to this strange sight,

The cause I did not seek;

But then one day to my surprise,

I saw he wore a leek.

I asked him if he’d please explain,

And let me know the reason;

He said, ‘I’m wearing leek because

Rhubarb’s out of season!’
