Emily the performing flea's
The bee's knees on the flying trapeze.
Sadly, for poor Emily, she's
So tiny that no-one sees
She ends her act with a strip tease.
It's hard to believe that in Victorian England people went to see flea circuses. The audience would have had an extra thrill had Emily been performing!
