Were having a drink with each other.

A goat on a stroll near a brook
Found an old movie film and partook.
“Was it good?” asked his mate.

To expressing itself in a terse
And yet, all the while,
The limerick’s always a verse.
Two brother devised what at sight
Seemed a bicycle crossed with a kite.
They predicted – rash pair!
It would fly through the air!
And what do you know? They were Wright!
