W, WISEBOY with pleasure I greet,

For with knowledge no doubt such a youth is replete.

In reading, in spelling, in using the pen,

And casting up figures, he’ll equal some men ;

Nay of grammar itself he knows every rule,—

So you see he’s an honour indeed to our school.


X is our XERXES,—a Captain we boast,

Who like his great namesake might head an armed host;

This honour denied, we yet yield to his rule,

Commander in Chief of the Boys of our School, ;

He marshals our ranks, and he measures each pace,

And puts us about to the right and left face.
