I found a little nursery rhyme

I was looking up nursery rhymes when I came across this little gem. I think its funny, anyway.

There was a little guinea-pig,
Who, being little, was not big;
He always walked upon his feet,
And never fasted when he eat.

When from a place he run away,
He never at the place did stay;
And while he run, as I am told,
He ne'er stood still for young or old.

He often squeaked, and sometimes violent,
And when he squeaked he ne'er was silent.
Though ne'er instructed by a cat,
He knew a mouse was not a rat.

One day, as I am certified,
He took a whim and fairly died;
And as I am told by men of sense,
He never has been living since.

I must say that I have never heard of such a rhyme...and about the blog lacking in Caleb-ness, um I didn't know his auntie was so possessive, in the best sense. I will have some Caleb posted soon:)
