all in a woeful plight.
Sought shelter in a wayside inn
on a dark and stormy night.
Nine rooms, no more, the landlord said
have I to offer you.
For each of eight a single bed
but the ninth must serve for two.
A din arose, the troubled host
could only scratch his head.
For amongst those footsore travellers
no two would share one bed.
The troubled host was soon at ease
he was a clever man.
And to please all ten men
he devised this most ingenious plan.
In room marked “A” two men he placed
the third he put in “B”
The fourth in “C” he tucked away
the fifth retired to “D”
In “E” and “F” the sixth and seventh
and in “G” the eighth man.
In “H” the ninth he tucked away
and then to “A” he ran.
Wherein as I have said
he’d laid two travellers by.
Taking one, the tenth and last
he lodged him safe in “I”
Nine rooms, a room for each
was made to serve for ten.
And this it is that’s bothered me
and many wiser men. Camp Programs Masterminds I & II Idea: Play games, lots & lots of games
