Sunday’s Piece

“Make way for liberty!” he cried,
Made way for liberty, and died.

Friday’s Piece

Home is the place where, when you go there,
They have to take you in.

Wednesday’s Piece

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren’t lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.
