by Mr. Lucas Brice

in days of old
it once was told,
a lady, full of grace,
my son, she said,
has lost his head
and i have lost my face.

i don’t know how
this happened,
though we’ve been to far-off lands,
it also seems that
my young son
has lost both of his hands.

i don’t know
who has done this,
or what they did it for,
but now i’ll have to
take young Tom’s
new hat back to the store.
