the loafer

there was a bell in the garden,

nobody attended it but sweet kitten,

who having got fond of it decided to take,

it to his home and sing a good lullaby,

but it was heavy as the chessboard,

which having spread the boys idled for love,

while their time about the village and played,

with the kitten but kitten went arousing,

with the bell ringing in the heart for summer,

Nel brought it from the farmer for two dollar bill,

and there he fumbled with his first love who,

thought herself to be the princess.

Once kitten took to Nel’s house,

it was lonely winter and heard the bell,

as played by the princess- a complete contralto,

and slept.
