"A' trade, my son! That's a queer request,

And I can afford it as well you know;
And a trade, Jim, isn't that rather low?

To cram your train with classical knowledge;
Then to cliooie a profession than pleases you
Vou learn a trade Jim? I'm sure you jest!"
T-No, father, I mean just what T say: '
I've thought of the matter for many a day,
And that is the serious choice I've made;
If you don't object, let me learn a trade.
You say it's low. but we don't agree;
All 'labor is honor' it seems to me.
