My aunt, deceased about five years ago at the age of maybe 95 or so, used to love to recite this little poem from her childhood:

Little Isaac Izenheimer
Thought he'd be a steeple-climber.
Climbed to the top of St. Peter's steeple
Then fell down and scared some people.
Broke the E-R off his name.
Wasn't that a measly shame?
His father rushed up just in time
To pick up little Isaac Izenheim!
