THE RESULT OF CRUELTY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Jack parker was a cruel boy
Last Line: Whilst bellowing at a furious bull.
Subject(s): Boys; Cruelty


JACK PARKER was a cruel boy,
For mischief was his sole employ;
And much it grieved his friends to find
His thoughts so wickedly inclined.

He thought it clever to deceive,
And often ramble without leave;
And ev'ry animal he met
He dearly loved to plague and fret.

But all such boys, unless they mend,
May come to an unhappy end,
Like Jack, who got a fractured skull,
Whilst bellowing at a furious bull.
