"Molly Finn"
-- a Balliol rhyme

[Tuesday, March 3, 2015]

I'm the oldest. My name's Molly.
Arguing with me is folly.
I ride a bus that's loud and fleet
To scrape dumb people off the street.

A Balliol rhyme describes a person in four lines, each with four beats, arranged into two rhyming couplets.
