She Was Shopping.
She screamed in terror w hen her purse
Was snatched from out her jeweled hand,
And hurled a modest semi curse
Toward the fleeing, hold brigand;
And when the copper caught the thief
She seiz-d the pur e with anxious air,
And breathed a sigh of sweet relief
To find her treasures all were there
A penciled note
Her 11* I In w wrote,
A sugar plum,
A wad of gum,
A hair pin (lient)
A copper cent,
A button Imok
With broken crook,
A curling tin,
A powder rag,
A sachet bag.
These were tin* treasures which she .bore
Around with her from store to store
While on a -hupping tour, to see
The immy pretty things which he
Would love to buy if she but had
The cash, and with a smile so glad
- It almost made the copper sneeze
She thanked hint, and with sprightly ease
Tripped on to seek another store
Or two where she could shop some more.
