This interpretation provided the basis for a verse reply from “Philo-Rhithmus” of Edinburgh Why the deuce do you give yourselves so much vexation, And puzzle your brains with a long calculation Of the number of cats, with their kittens and sacks, Which went to St Ives, on the old women’s backs, As you seem to suppose? — Don’t you see that the cunning Old Querist went only? — The rest were all coming. But grant the wives went too, — as sure’s they were married, Eight only could go, — for the rest were all carried. As I was going to St Ives - Wikipedia Link: https://en.wikipedia.org “As I was going to St Ives” (Roud 19772) is a traditional English-language nursery rhyme in the form of a riddle.
