THE NORMALOGUE The little boy said, 'Mr. Bird,
Pray tell me, who are you?'
And all the answer that he heard
'What would you think, if you were I,'
He said, 'and I were y0u?'
But still that bird provokingly
'Hark to me, you stupid head
How much is two times two?'
That old bird winked one eye and said
The boy then slammed the window down:
To a fence the old bird flew,
And flapping hard his two wings brown,
Cried, 'Cock-a-doodle-doodle-doodle-doo!' U
Mame: Say, how did you say that that boy got out of bed?
Mabel: He jumped. '
Mame: You said it as though he crawled. Put some "pep" into "jumped". Like this,
"A little boy jumped out of bed."
Mabel: CBepeats lst linej
Sally: Why didn't you poke out your head as you think the little boy would have done it?
See-like this-Cdoes ill What's that line?
lGirls tell her the linej "And out the window poked his head and spied a crowing cock."
Make your eyes pop when you say that? I saw Miss Baright do it when she read it.
Mabel: lRereads the stanzaj
Jean: I've been thinking that there's transition in that stanza. How about the place
between the jumping and the poking of his head out of the window? Why not step for-
ward and do as we were told yesterday during our Expression period? lJean rereads
blame: Jean, I think you've got brains if you'd only use them.
Mabel: Well, let me go on or you'll never get the gist of the poem. The trouble with
you girls is, you don't "Practice what you teach." Say Mame, you never looked at us
once when you recited your poem yesterday.
blame: Can't blame me-I'd have burst if I'd looked at you. By the way-that was a
sad poem and I can't put that kind of a poem across as well as a funny one like the one
Sally: CSingsD "Blame it on the-Poem."
lllabelz Listen-Creads second stanzaj
Jean: You'll never be a singer!
Sally: VVhy don't you do the Glee Club a favor, and hand in a farewell address?
Mabel: Say, this isn't a song, it's a poem.
