Found his words truly shocking!
But his smile was so very winning …

Trill in the chill air,
Which took away my care.

Who was fond of wearing no clothes.

Living Expenses

She in need of rent.
He calculates his money spent
On the dance without romance.
But still he pays
In so many ways,
And finds a kind
Of content in the charms
Of a girl’s reluctant arms.
And calculates his money spent.
While she pays her rent.

There Once Was a Dog Named Apollo

Who said, “my stomach is very hollow!”

And my old great coat.
But his stomach it still felt hollow!

Who said, “I fear that I shall die.
They will bury me
Under yonder old tree,
With my poor poetry, and this poisoned pie!”

On hearing the bells chime
I think on time.
Although there is no
Clock in the church tower
To measure my brief hour.

Has lost many a shoe,
Which I’ve found with Miss Hocking’s stockings …!
