TWENTIETH FLAT

  A taxidermist plied his trade
    Upon a walrus’ head. 
  It really made him quite afraid
    To meet its stare so dread.

  When suddenly the rocket, bright,
    Flared up and then was off! 
  “Oh, Minnie,” cried the man in fright,
    “Just hear that walrus cough!”

[Illustration:  Twentieth flat]

TOP FLAT

  Oh, it was just a splendid flight—­
    That rocket’s wild career! 
  But to an end it came, all right,
    As you shall straightway hear.

  It plunged into a can of cream
    That Billy Bunk was freezing,
  And froze quite stiff, as it would seem,
    And so subsided, wheezing.
