More Beasts for Worse Children by  Hilaire Belloc


 

 

THE VULTURE


[Illustration]

The Vulture eats between his meals,

And that's the reason why


[Illustration]

He very, very rarely feels

As well as you and I.


His eye is dull, his head is bald,

His neck is growing thinner.

Oh! what a lesson for us all

To only eat at dinner.
