A Moral Alphabet, Page 45

Transcription

Were I to write but half of what they know,
It would exhaust the space reserved for “O”;
And, as my book must not be over big.
I turn at once to ” P,” which stands for Pig.

Moral.
Be taught by this to speak with moderation
Of places where, with decent application,
One gets a good, sound, middle-class education.
