First Line: The town thought me a model woman
Last Line: What a horrid thing I was when I got started.
Subject(s): Insanity; Masters, Edgar Lee (1869-1950); Murder; Orphans; Madness; Mental Illness; Foundlings


The town thought me a model woman
With my girlish hair tumbling down my brow.
I kept my secret well
And even to-day
Nobody realizes the truth
That at various times in fits of temper
I burned the orphan asylum,
Murdered my father because I didn't like
The smell of his pipe,
And forged his will in my favor;
People didn't understand
What a horrid thing I was when I got started.
