THE MAN WITH NOUGHT, by                    
First Line: There was a man and he had nought
Last Line: And never looked behind him

THERE was a man and he had nought,
And robbers came to rob him;
He crept up to the chimney top,
And then they thought they had him.

But he got down on the other side,
And then they could not find him;
He ran fourteen miles in fifteen days,
And never looked behind him.
