CONCERNING CORRECT SPEECH.
Oh why should the spirit

Of margin allowed?
Of course there’s a limit
“knowed” and “I saw,”
“1 seen” and “done it,”
Are rather too raw.
But there are others
No better than they
One hears in the talking
I Ie hears every day.
“Where at?” asks one person.
Quite thoughtless. And; “Who,”
Asks another, “did Mary
Give that bonnet to?”
Hear a maid as she twitters
“Oil, yes, I went out
With she and her fellow
lo his runabout.”
And iiear a man saying:
“Between you and l,
That block of Pacific
Would make a good buy.”
And this from a mother
Too kind to her boy:
“1 had rather you shouldn’t
Do things to annoy.”
And this from a student,
Concerning a show,
Who says to the maiden:
“Let’s you and I go.”
There’s lots of good people,
That’s talking like that
Who should learn from we critics
To know whore they’re at.
