It makes mo nervous as a cat To listen to tho speeches flat, And contemplate the horrid tricks Put up by those in politics. But when on Polly fair I call, In summer, winter, spring', or fall, And sit so close that I can hear Her watch tick-tockins' loud and clear, As near her heart it lies at rest, Like eome rare birdling in its ncsfc, Oh, then it is I gladly fix •My mind and sold on. Polly-ticks! Oarltij: Smith.
