Poetry of Kansas

Rosa And Mary.

Rosa Bonheur was an artist___
    Artist worthy of the name;
Painted in their grace and beauty
    Animals both wild and tame.
Mary Walker was a doctor,
    Egotistic, very swell;
Office full of vile concoctions,
    Chief of which was calomel.
Rosa, in man's handy clothing,
    Showed no pertness, not a speck;
Mary had another object___
    Make the people rubberneck.
