Ellis Parker Butler (5 December 1869 - 13 September 1937 / Muscatine / Iowa / United States)
A Scotchman Whose Name Was Isbister
A Scotchman whose name was Isbister
Had a maiden giraffe he called 'sister'
When she said 'Oh, be mine,
Be my sweet Valentine!'
He just shinned up her long neck and kissed her.
