Perry Roasting by Mail Anon I write a lay inspired, that I believe will hit the spot alas, it makes some readers tired— they call it balderdash and rot They write to me in bitter tones* and say I am a false alarm they cannot see how I draw bones for verse that has so little charm. Then on the willow tree I hang my lyre that brought me such dis grace, and go and join the weep ing gang around the well known wailing place. The savage letter is a sign that someone's liver's out of plumb no misfit madrigal of mine should make the harsh epis tles come. Some fellows lift my hide by mail, and that's a safe and pleasant stunt if face to face they'd doubtless quail before my fierce and Mars-like front. Some-' times I write such screeds myself. —liair-lifting letters bold and stern but then I place them on the shelf, or put them in the stove to burn. When I feel sad and tired and sore, it does me good to take a pen, and write ten thous and words or more, denouncing all my fellowmen. I rake -my foes and cook them brown, and strive to do them wordy harm but when the stuff is written down I would not mail it for a farm. When one has mailed a bitter note, he gasps to see how small he's grown he hoped to get anoth^S at, and finds that he has got his own. —Walt Mason.
