A Moral Alphabet by  Hilaire Belloc






who rode to the meet,

And talked of the Pads of the fox as his "feet"

An error which furnished subscribers with grounds

For refusing to make him a Master of Hounds.

That he sold up his Stable and went on the Stage,

And had all the success that a man could desire

In creating the Part of

The advantage of having two strings to his bow.
