Theophilus Thadeus Thistledown,

The succesful thistle-sifter,

While sifting a sieve-full of unsifted thistles,

Thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb.

Now, if Theophilus Thadeus Thistledown,

The succesful thistle-sifter,

Thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb,

See that thou, while sifting a sieve-full of unsifted thistles,

Thrust not three thousand thistles through the thick of thy thumb.
