Lines Through a Old Fogy
I am gratefully that the sun and the moon
That so highly hangs,
The not claiming hand can extend
AND throw it from the sky.
If they were not, I am certain however
A burro that reforms would
Recommend to descend it,
AND to ignite the world with gas.
Lines By an Old Fogy
I'm thankful that the sun and moon
Are both hung up so high,
That no presumptuous hand can stretch
And pull them from the sky.
If they were not, I have no doubt
But some reforming ass
Would recommend to take them down
And light the world with gas.
