Fleeing from his lady adorers.

(1) Three Fates there are, so Poesy doth state—     Here's a fourth (with Envy mixed)—the Floral Fête.

(2) To sell your better half for half a crown     Is not de rigueur now in London Town.

(3) These Gauchos are so picturesque to view—     They may have many a (Buffalo) Bill-et doux.

(4) Lynch lawlessness the negro in the States     Resents, and for retaliation waits!

(5) Though but once this season Paderewski's here—     Be (piano-)forte-fied, and shed no tear!

(6) For their thrift-society City-waiters feed—     They're sensible to thus provide 'gainst need.

(7) If your wife thrashes you you can't leave her,     If vice versâ, though, she soon can stir.
