. SCIENCE HALL
Dear Professor Powell:
I have studied
Under you since first we met
And drop yoiir highest course, sir.
With the keeiiest of regret.
For I’ve di|>ped into the science
Far as luinian eye could see;
Studied frogs, and cats, and crawfish
And the humble bumble bee.
Skinned an earthworm, laid his kidnev
Underneath the microscope;
Found within his pickled carcass
More than I had dared to hope.
Made a slide of lizard muscle.
Cut a slice of human bone.
Stained a smear with red eosin.
Smear of human blood, my own.
Set some eggs and cut them open,
Took the little chickens out;
Drew a June.bug’s painted eyelash
And a San Jose scale’s snout;
Drew a cell of Tradescentia
Taken from the rootlet 's tip;
Took my net upon my shoulder,
Caught a horse-fly with the pip;
Drew the agile paramecium,
Also molded him in wax;
Made a cartoon of the volvox
And the Anieba Umax;
Took the brains of senseless dog-fish
And the stomach of a snake;
Made a paste of Pasteur's fluid
And a section of yeast cake.
But I’ve never yet attempted
Living microbes for to draw,
And I simply cannot help It—
I just hold all germs in awe.
I can see them playing marbles
In the sterilizing can.
Wouldn’t they play bloody havoc
With the insides of a man?
See that big bacillus yonder
Sitting cm the antoclav;
Once inside your lung he’ll send you
Straight to an untimely grave.
There’s a chain of fearful monsters
That to touch were suicide;
See they’re eating healthy slices
Froni the cake of bichloride.
Watch that cluster of small cocci
Lurking on the doorknob’s rim,
Give them but a half a chance, and
They’ll attacke your eyes with vim.
No, sir, I can stand dissection,
Think that skinning cats is fine,
Even like to draw the froggie—
But at germs I draw the line.
THAT’S FLU
A little ache
A little pain
A little cen
sure of the rain!
That’s flu!
A little ach
ing of the head,
A little wail—
‘ ‘ Wish I was dead! "
That’s flu!
First there is one
Then there are two.
An epidem
ic of the flu!
That’s flu!
How do you know Chaucer dictated
to a stenographer?
Just locrk at the spelling!
Great Scott! What on earth has
that fool of a jeweler been playing at
with this ring?” exclaimed a young
man, gazing at the engagement ring in
his hand.
‘'What’s the trouble?” asked his
friend.
“Why, I told him to engrave from
‘A to Z—from Arthur to* Zena—on
the inside of it and the idiot has put in
the whole blooming alphabet.’
“You should think of the future.”
“I can’t. It’s my girl’s birthday
and I have to think of the present.”

GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA
Give me a corned-beef sandwich,
A trolley car ran down my throat,
Or give me a ducky straight.
Or surely I will chcrke.
Once 1 was married and miserable,
And had a loving wife,
And thought no more of spending a
cent.
Than 1 did of taking my life.
’Way over in the wilds of Jersey,
Where you’d sink in mud to your
knees,
I had a cross-eyed daughter,
And she was just the cheese.
Mashes! why she had ’em by the barrel.
Each ow’ned a brown-stone brick,
But they were mostly Jersey farmers.
And she said they made her sick.
When along comes a Bowery actor,
A regular free-Iunch tank—
He said he was a song and dance man,
And had lots of money in the bank.
Well, it’s the same old gag
On which many a one got tripped;
He got her to pawn my Sunday clothes
And then to the river skipped.
Now the poor thing never turned a
comic.
For she liad a terrible fall,
And when I got out of jail that day.
She up and told me all.
I took her to my aching heart,
I smashed her in the smeller,
Then I swept the floor with her.
And threw her in the cellar.
Now you can laugh and chew tobacco.
And say whatever you like
But I’ll tramp till I find that bum actor
If it takes until Saturday night.
