Poem about suitcase

Post by Neville Briggs » Sat Dec 29, 2018 8:09 pm

My aunt used to recite a poem years ago which was a comical verse about a family packing a suitcase and losing the key. The suitcase gets packed and unpacked several times looking for a lost key and the skill of the recitation was to relate the list of all the items as they were unpacked and packed.
Does anybody recognise this theme, I am trying to find the name and author and the text of the poem.
Singleton Bush Poets.

G/day Neville

Don't remember that poem, but it sounds a lot like the ditty 'There was an old woman who swallowed a fly',
