The Old Man in a tree

 The Old Man in a tree, an illustration by JVL in The Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear
Jonathan Cape, 1984 and reissued in 2012.

There was an Old Man in a tree,
Who was horribly bored by a bee;
When they said, 'Does it buzz?' he replied, 'Yes it does!
It's a regular brute of a Bee!'
