I never saw a purple cow
I never hope to see one
But I can tell you anyhow
I’d rather see than be one

Ah yes I wrote “The purple cow.”
I’m sorry now I wrote it.
But I can tell you anyhow,
I’ll Kill you if you quote it!

Both poems written by Frank Gelett Burgess, The first in 1896 and the second in 1914, for obvious reasons.
