|It Could Be Verse by Col. Stoopnagle|
Of music he knew not a note
When nine years old, but then,
He studied hard, and in ONE YEAR
This gifted boy was ten!
I have a snowplow airplane
That flies a mile a minute.
Then when the snow falls down, it has
A path already in it.
Somebody won the Inventors' Prize,
But I, I'm sure, it wasn't;
My invention looks like an umbrella, but ain't,
For when it looks like rain, but doesn't.
[From Parade, circa 1940's]
