From the Albuquerque Morning Journal, October 25, 1914. By Ralph Bacon.

I’ve quit a-goin’ to Sunday school—
    I’m goin’ to be as bad
As Captain Kidd or Nero was
    Or Jimmy Mayer’s dad.
I’m goin’ to be so awful mean,
    I’m sure to go to hell;
An’ when I see the devil, then
    I’ll go to him an’ tell
How that ol’ man what catches dogs
    Came by our house one day
An’ coaxed Spot right into his net
    An’ drug him away.
An’ then I’ll say, “Good devil, please,
    I’ve come down here to work;
I’m just as strong as any man,
    An’ I will never shirk.
If you’ll just let me tend the fire
    An’ keep it good an’ hot,
Where you have put that wicked man
    Who took away old Spot.
