Today's Brain Game is another "poem wot I writ myself." It's a horrible rhyme, granted. But as a riddle, I hope that it is neither too obvious nor too obscure. Good luck!

"BR5-49" was the well-advertised phone number of Junior Samples' car lot on TV's Hee-Haw and is now the name of a popular country band.
