Better Than Much Learning

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch, May 20, 1915.

Pretty little Polly lacks
    The intellectual bent—
In fact, for culture and the like
    She wouldn’t give a cent.
And at the highbrow festivals
    She wonders what is meant.

But pretty Polly dances like
    A dainty woodland sprite,
And e’en to watch her elfish grace
    Is pure unmixed delight.
And Polly’s lips are scarlet buds,
    Her neck is milky white.

What does little Polly care
    That no one thinks her wise?
Why, wisdom doesn’t stand a chance
    When she employs her eyes,
And each discerning man in sight
    To do her bidding flies.
