Solomon Grundy


Solomon Grundy, born on a Monday,
Christened on a stark and stormy Tuesday,
Married on a gray and grisly Wednesday,
Took ill on a mild and mellow Thursday,
Grew worse on a bright and breezy Friday,
Died on a gay and glorious Saturday,
Buried on a baking, blistering Sunday.
That was the end of Solomon Grundy.






History:

Solomon Grundy is believed to get derived from the English nutrient Salmagundi, which was integrated into the English word from the French in the 17th century, and is a salad of cooked meats, cabbage, anchovies and eggs, with new condiments. The figure of the salad was corrupted in the 18th century to Solomon Gundy, especially in the United States. Solomon Grundy is a 19th century children's verse, and was presented by James Orchard Halliwell-Phillipps in 1842. The poem is basically a conundrum in which the living of Solomon Grundy appears to go spot in the procedure of an unmarried week, the response being that each day's events happened in a distinct year.
