See, Sore and a Seesaw
Mr. See and Mr. Sore were old friends. See owned a saw and Sore a seesaw Now See’s saw sawed Sore’s seesaw before Sore saw See which made Sore sore with See had Sore seen See’s saw before See’s saw sawed sore’s seesaw then See’s saw would not have sawed Sore’s seesaw. But See saw Sore and sore’s seesaw before Sore saw See’s saw, so you see how Sore saw could saw Sore’s seesaw. It was a shame to see See see sore so sore with See just because See’s saw sawed Sore’s seesaw.
