Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme (circa 1725)

Pretty good one, Mother Goose – your rhymes reflected your times.

As for Father Goose, that rascal, what might he write in 2017?

Little Jack Kelly

Sat watching telly

Eating his fish and chips;

He answered his phone

Because he was home

Then said with a groan,

“I’m it.”

Best wishes to General Kelly in his new role as Chief of Staff. One week and counting.

Stay tuned, sports fans.
