. Sea-Shell Shope - Poem by Adeline Foster

.Sea-Shell Shope

She sells those sea shells
Along the sea shore
Cheaper than the sea shells
At the sea-shell store.

It's a shop-keeping nation
In a shop-keeping world.

Shopkeeper, Shopkeeper
What will you do
When all of your neighbors
Are shopkeepers too?
