From A, the great Leader, to Z in the rear,

The names of “OUR SCHOOL-BOYS” shall quickly appear;

The characters too, we shall faithfully tell,

Of those who act BADLY and those who act WELL;

That all little boys an example may take,

To copy the GOOD and the BAD to forsake.

B is BOB BOOBY,—how sulky his look!

Whom nobody loves, for he loves not his book;

When call’d, by the Usher, to spell or to read,

He whimpering cries, ” I don’t know it indeed!”

The rod and fool’s cap he has had in their turn,

But Bob seems resolved that he never will learn.
