Saturday limerick blogging!

Well! It's Saturday again and so time for a limerick. Here's one that, suprisingly, I don't think I'd ever come across before today:

T. S. Eliot is quite at a loss
When clubwomen bustle across
At literary teas
Crying, “What, if you please,
Did you mean by The Mill On the Floss?”

- by W. H. Auden

By the way, The Mill on the Floss was written by George Eliot, not T.S. Eliot. That's part of why this is a terribly clever limerick!
