EXIT BRUIN. t
By Berton Braley.
I'm not averse to ragtime talk ;
In fact, Fm pretty strong for
slang.
It's mighty hard to make me balk
At any guff from any gang.
I'll stand for "beat it" and "good
night,"
And "marble heart" and "fros
ty stare,"
And that old has-been "out of
sight"
But I won't stand for "It's a
bear!" ,
I tie no can to "candy kid,"
I don't mind "scream" or
"peacherine";
To speak of any hat as "lid"
Affects me not with any spleen.
"Backed. off the walk" or -"to the
woods"
In no way make me want to
swear; v
I don't protest at "that's th
goodsj"
But I won't stand for "It's a
bearv!"
I'd like to bump that silly phrase
Clean off the earth, and further
still, , '
X'd like to knock it seven ways,
To shoot it, flay it, slay and kill.
I fall for slang and like it fine,
No highbrow .attitude'1! wear;
Pure classic English nix for
mine 1 '
But I won't stand for "It's a
bear!"
