Poetry of Kansas

Z. C. E.

I take my pen to write a song
Of a lass of six times three,
Though the song
And the lassie's name is Z.
Though the Pen is long that writes the song
Of the lass of,
'Tis not so long as I
For this lass whose name is C.
May grief be short a
For this lass of,
And heaven keep her from the wrong-
This lass whose name is E
