Out of the fat, As clear as glass, He put up his mouth And moaned "Alas!" Oh, most mournful, " Alas, alaek! " Then turned to his sizzling, And sank him back. TIRED TIM P 00R tired Tim! as sad for him. He lags the long bright morning through, Ever so tired of nothing to do; He moons and mopes the livelong day, Nothing to think about, nothing to say; Up to bed with his candle to creep, Too tired to yawn, too tired to sleep: Poor tired Tim! It's sad for him MIMA JEMIMA is my name, But oh, I have another: My father always calls me Meg, And so do Bob and mother; Only my sister, jealous of The strands of my bright hair, " Jemima--Mima--Mima!

THE DUNCE WHY does he still keep ticking? Why does his round white face Stare at me over the books and ink, And mock at my disgrace? more
