Poetry of Kansas

The Killed Deer.

The deer in a woods a-bounding went;
The hunter a bullet quickly spent;
    The deer fell dead,
    And the hunter said,
"That bullet went straight as it was meant."
There's a lot in this if you'll think it o'er,
And the more you think it, the more and more;
    Had the bullet missed,
    And behind it hissed,
The deer would be bounding as before.
