Poetry of Kansas

William And Jerry.

Sitting in his underwear,
    William Jennings ceased
Talking politics awhile,
    Till his pants were creased.
Jerry was a wiser man;
    With his sockless toes,
Lifted Prince Hal high in air,
    Dangling silken hose.
Simpson, tho his shins were bare,
    Got there just the same;
Bryan with his bagless pants
    Does not bag the game.
