A Young Lady of Kent


There was a young lady of Kent
Who said that she knew what it meant
When men asked her to dine,
Gave her cocktails and wine —
She knew what it meant but she went.

There are several much lewder versions of this anonymous limerick, but I prefer this one!

The illustration is ‘The Seduction’ by Max Silbert (1871-1930) via Wikimedia

    There was a young lady of Kent,
    Who needed to pay her rent,
    Her need for pence,
    made her lose her common sense,
    The pence she raised,
    was not well made,
    her good name was spent.
