Three li’l birdies,
All snug in bed,
A Wren, a Thrush,
AND a Bob-o-link!
Now I’ll bet you know
What might be said
To rhyme with Bob-o- – – – !
But you were wrong,
You nasty things!
We WERE gonna sing a song!
About our three li’l wings.
So just for that,
We just won’t try
To make this fit (uh-fat O.)
No sir, we’s gonna fly!
So there! Goo-by-yi,,,,,,

Mary’s heart would never mend…
She could not love another.
John was Mary’s high ideal….
Until she met his brother!

Teeth are all gone. Breath is a fright.
Can’t get a date for Saturday night.
But why should I worry or wish I were dead?
It’s been 40 years since I was wed!

It’s cold in the Winter
Chilly in the Fall
Summer is the bestest
Season of all!

The Mirror”

Old Jones’ pretty daughter
Knelt by the Spring for water
And a shy sort of a guy
Blushed while passing by
At what he saw in the water!
Clifford Palmer, Augusta Me.

Lessons in Living

It’s puff and pant and lift and lug and push and shove and carry. You never get out of this world alive, in fact you’re not a fairy. So eat your fill and drink your fill and hunt for wild women, and every time you get all wet be sure you’ve been in swimming. – Will Sinn
