Poetry of Kansas

A Gentleman.

He is a gallant gentleman,
      And wears the blandest smile.
His clothes are always sure to be
      In just the latest style.
His hair___cut a la brush heap,
      Hangs o'er his noble brow,
Behind, cut a la convict.
      He makes the finest bow
Of any one you ever saw,
      And takes the utmost pains
To keep his boots like mirrors.
      All, all he lacks is brains.

__Gertrude Crumb Harman
