THIS POOR BOSSY.
Anna and Ruth one stormy day,
Tired of work, and anxious for play.
Decided that they their pitcher would take
And search for some milk—some fudge to make.
The roads were rough and the wind did blow.
Yet from house to house these girls'did go— .
Always getting the same answer. “We have no more.
Perhaps you can find some at the house next door.
So across the street, they winded their way,
Knocked at the door and proceeded to say
“Do you keep a cow?" The lady sighed and sadly said:
"We used to, but this very morning she dropped down dead."
Now, good old cows, just listen to me:
If you’re as kind as you ought to be
Don’t, on the day girls want to buy,
Be so inconsiderate as to lie down and die.
