The Malicious Brush
When poor little Hand-Glass
Was loudly berated
For casting reflections,
The Brush was elated.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Mother Mitchell one day lost her pussy, alack!
And cried out of window: "Oh who'll bring her back?"
Then old Gaffer Lustucru smilingly said:
"Your cat isn't lost--she is merely mislaid."
Mother Mitchell cried hopefully gazing around her:
"My pussy not lost! Oh, pray, have you found her?"
Then old Gaffer Lustucru answered her pat:
"If you give a reward you will soon get your cat."
Said old Mother Mitchell: "Twould not be amiss,
If you find me my pussy, to give you a kiss."
But sly Gaffer Lustucru much preferred gold,
And said: "As a rabbit your pussy is sold!"
