= 'lUE BURRO ...
By Cass Johnson
Scme poetry I will try to write
Of the Senior Class of '21,
Though you may call it a holy sight,
And altogether on the bum.
When this dear class forever more
Go from out the doors of the M. W. High,
For manner sake it me behooves
To heave a long, pathetic sigh.
First will I sing of Georgia Cross,
The genius of this mighty throng,
Though of the class she's not the boss,
She never did a thing called wrong.
Her closest rival is Eddie Mae,
Though this you'd never know;
You would never guess or dare to say
That Eddie Mae had a beau.
Of all the wondrous athletes
who rival Nick Crenshaw?
That guy I'll say is hard to beat
With upper-cuts upon the jaw.
Of all notorious ladies' men
All say it's Calloway Dean-
But to 'cuse' him of it-oh, well, then,
He says: "What do you mean?"
Alas, alas, there's Henry Moulder;
I thought I'd claim him for my own,
But I have already seen him hold her;
Now I am left all alone.
