The Printing-Office Towel.
The office towel was leaningfthere
Against the ink-stained wall
Its joints quite stiff with age and things
It really could n't fall.
The telegraph announced the death
Of one to fame well known
And so upon the office front
Deep mourning must be shown.
But what to do? With coffers bare
How could the crepe be bought?
It could n't but a massive brain
Evolved a happy thought.
"What! hoi there kid! bring ine an ax
And I will ribbons make
From yonder towel of vintage old
v Unless the ax should break).
We'll not be pointed at with Mzorn
For Lick of due respect
So 1 i' as this strong arm can wield
A.. .. iith good effect."
The .. was brought and that brave lad
IK..:i a fierce attack
rpon the towel that for so long
Hil been the Slackest black
The towel which tradition said
Ha 1 once been almost white
But w hich now lacked a single spot
Ot color that was light.
T : cut in strips and nailed about
Tkv print tng-ofiice door.
And u-ed its purpose well indeed
Nr. use to worry more.
The opKaitiou down the street.
With envy turned quite green
For i Uat oltLjug made far the best
Display of mourning seen.
