To hear the story, give praise for the morning.
To read the story, give praise for the singing.
This week in The Prattler, "Hall of Kings."
This is a truth, as old as the hills,
That life and experience teach:
The poor man suffers that keenest of ills,
An impediment of his reach.
The friendship of Crocker I tenderly prize-
I wear many kinds of his collars.
He's endeared to my heart by the sacred ties
Of a thousand accessible dollars.*

I curse you, Jack Satan, in horns and in hoof,
For you're a competing divine,
And the souls you pull into your pit are proof
That your pull-pit is bigger than mine.
