As Mozart composed a sonata,
The maid bent to fasten her garter;
Without any delay
He started to play
Un poco piu appassionata...

(from Tony Davie's Limerick Archive)


There is one great composer whose name is never included with the greats.
Why is it that the world never remembered the name of
Johann Gambolputty... de von Ausfern-schplenden-schlitter-crasscrenbon-
