A testament to the triumphs of the Silver Age:
Four boots and one bun,
You cannot be wrong
When you wind up your hat.

A glorious depiction on the fabled walls of the poetry club:
Four boots and one bun,
You cannot be gone
When you put on your suit.

The colonel had been living upon the Bluff at Yokohama:
He'd seen finer hours,
And kept better time
When he wound up his hat.

I called on him once, in the spur of the moment, to decide upon tea:
He'd seen greater things
And was not well
When he put on his suit.
