Wednesday’s Piece

“Auntie, did you feel no pain
Falling from that apple-tree?
Would you do it, please, again?
Cuz my friend here didn’t see.”

(From ‘Ruthless Rhymes for Heartless Homes‘ by Harry Graham, 1874 – 1936)

(Photo: my father used to type all these “piece for the day” entries using a typewriter on printed forms for “smalls” listings provided by the Rhodesia Herald / Sunday Mail newspapers, then hand deliver them to the newspaper office in “town”.  Occasionally he would a note like this one using another form, for the newspaper office’s attention!)
