A-propos that last post of Jim's, I recently posted on the Mudcat Poetry Corner thread one of the limericks with which I won a Folk Review competition way back when, for limericks summarising ballads. My one for Child #1 'Riddles...', #4, 'Captain Wedderburn', &c &c, went:—

That persons of noble condition
Must faddle and fiddle
To answer a riddle
If they wish to indulge in coition
