She screamed in terror when her purse
Was snatched from out her jeweled hand,
And hurled a modest semi-curse
Toward the fleeing, bold brigand;
And when the copper caught the thief
She seized the purse with anxious air.
And breathed a sigh of sweet relief
To find her treasures ail were there.
A penciled note
Her fellow wrote,
A sugar plum,
A wad of gum,
A hair-pin (bent,)
A copper cent,
A button hook
With broken crook,
A curling tin,
A powder rag,
A sachet bag.
These were the treasures which she bore
Around with her from store to store
While on a shopping tour, to see
The many pretty things which she
Would love to buy if she but had
The cash, and with a smile so glad
It almost made the copper sneeze
She Thanked him, and with sprightly ease
Tripped on to seek another store
Or two where she could shop some more.
