513. Walter-of-the-Sea (no chicken, he)

Walter de la Mare was an English author.  If you read this about him, the limerick will make more sense.
Rockefeller had no trouble fundin'
Standard Oil 'cause he'd bucks in abundan'.
It became Inc. in Delaware
And hired Walter de la Mare
To work on statistics in London.
