Franklin Hyde

by
 Who caroused in the Dirt and was corrected by His Uncle.
His Uncle came upon Franklin Hyde Carousing in the Dirt.
He Shook him hard from Side to Side And Hit him till it Hurt, Exclaiming, with a Final Thud, "Take that! Abandoned boy! For Playing with Disgusting Mud As though it were a Toy!" Moral: From Franklin Hyde's adventure, learn To pass your Leisure Time In Cleanly Merriment, and turn From Mud and Ooze and Slime And every form of Nastiness- But, on the other Hand, Children in ordinary Dress May always play with Sand.
