There was a young man from Salisbury,
Whose manners were quite Halisbury Scalisbury.
He would walk around Hampshire,
Without any Pampshire,
Till the Bishop insisted he Walisbury.
Doesn't make much sense until you discover that the shortened version of Salisbury is Sarum and the shortened version of Hampshire is Hants.......
Best wishes, Mike.
