I love the squirrel that hops in the corn, And the cricket that quaintly sings; And the emerald pigeon that nods his head, And the shad that gaily springs. His face was no ways beautiful, For with small-pox 't was scarred across: And the shoulders of the ugly dog Were almost doubled a yard across. the lump of an Irishman, The whiskey devouring Irishman — The great he-rogue with his wonderful brogue, the fighting, riot- ing Irishman. After the show, there will be an Open Mic for the audience to share their favorite poems.

Alas, alas, The Hunky Kid Is lamentably drunk!
