"Unfortunate", the inspector sighed
"Why did he kill himself, that Mr. Tide?"
Let us question
and get some confession
Let us ask 'em all, far and wide... "
"One day, he came" said the maid
"That eccentric man, then said
That we should
Use limericks, good
When talking, if we want to be paid".
"Some found them difficult to make
Some found them impossible to fake
And Mr. Tide
That was an insult he couldn't take."
"Is that the reason for his death?"
The Inspector, think 'case closed', saith
She replied "No!"
"Someone, his foe
Mixed up the rhyming scheme, you know!"
