Do you struggle to remember what the book of Nehemiah is all about? Well, the following (nearly worthless) limerick is at least memorable, and should enable anyone to recite a quick summary of the major characters and plot of the book.
There was a young chap called Tobiah, Who observed Zion's walls getting 'igher; His friend, Sanballat, Said "'Ere look at that!" It's that dreadful young Jew, Nehemiah. Sanballat had put it like so: "Let's meet on the plains of Ono."

"Remember Tobiah", Prayed old Nehemiah, "And each of the prophets that mocks."
