In a land far away
Avoca or Bath as they may call it
A house nestled by a creek
There lived a young lady
With a family of many
Her figure bearing a chest aplenty
And on such a day as she was told
Carry these things to the basement below
She looked at her hands (there were only but two!)
Loading her arms with care
Balancing packages by the hair!
She made use of those monstrous beasts
Chin to package, package to bosom!
She faired well 'til she came to th' step
That many a time befall, even those daintyest
Despite that little mistep of misfortune
Her buxom faired her well
And on that day God blessed the shelf!
Ever after it twas used
As rest for countless burdens
Most oft' newest technology cradled there
When rest and recline could afford
Many a person (*cough* Amanda) made notice
Of the useful shelf!
