Tuesday’s Piece

But it’s easy ‘nough to titter w’en de stew is smokin’ hot,
But hit’s mighty ha’d to giggle w’en dey’s nuffin’ in de pot.

(From Philosophy by Paul Laurence Dunbar, 1872 – 1906)

Monday’s Piece

Some praise at morning what they blame at night,
But always think the last opinion right.
