Occupation Provided

From the Evening Star, April 15, 1913.
 By Philander Johnson.

 Whenever Jabez Jones takes hold
     Of anything at all
 We find he cannot be controlled
     In matters great or small.
 He hollers and he waves his hands
     And sometimes he gets cross
 While issuing his loud commands.
     He has to be the boss.
 He isn’t much at chopping wood
     Nor with a rake or hoe.
 His judgement isn’t very good
     And his results are slow.
 But time is precious. It is clear
     We shouldn’t risk its loss.
 So long as he can’t interfere,
     We just let Jabez boss.
