Reed's Favorite Poem.
Among the favorite poems of "Tom"
Heed, which he was fond of reciting,
was the following from the pen of
Pension Commissioner Ware:
Once a Kansas zephyr strayed
Where a brass-eyed bull pup played.
And that foolish canine bayed
At that zephyr in a gay.
Then that zephyr lu about
Half a Jiffy took that pup,
Tipped him over wrong side up!
Then it turned him wrong side out.
And It calmly Journeyed thence,
With a barn and string of fence.
When communities turn loose,
Social forces that produce
The disorders of a gale;
Act upon a well-known law.
Face the breeze, but close your Jaw
It's a rule that will not fall,
If you bay It In a gay
Self-sufficient sort of way.
It will land you, without doubt,
Upside down and wrong side out.
