THE GREAT PANJANDRUM
* * * * *
So she went into the garden to cut a cabbage-leaf
and at the same time a great she-bear, coming down the street, pops its head into the shop.

So he died,
and she very imprudently married the Barber:
and there were present the Picninnies, and the Joblillies,
and the Garyulies,
and the great Panjandrum himself, with the little round button at top;
and they all fell to playing the game of catch-as-catch-can,
till the gunpowder ran out at the heels of their boots.
