More Beasts for Worse Children by  Hilaire Belloc


 

 

THE BISON


[Illustration]

The Bison is vain,

And (I write it with pain)

The Door-mat you see on his head


[Illustration]

Is not as some learned professors maintain,

The opulent growth of a genius' brain;


[Illustration]

But is sewn on with needle and thread.
