Poetry of Kansas

'Twas only some berries___the goose___
    Growing near the garden wall; 
A boy found the berries___the goose___
    And ate them, the large and small. 
At midnight a cry was raised, 
    That grew to a terrible squall___
That boy wished he never had seen 
    Those berries___the goose___at all.
