Just Folks
by
Edgar A. Guest

To  the  Little  Mother and
the  Memory  of   the   Big
Father,  This  Simple  Book
Is Affectionately Dedicated

Just Folks

We're queer folks here.
  We'll talk about the weather,
  The good times we have had together,
The good times near,
  The roses buddin', an' the bees
  Once more upon their nectar sprees;
  The scarlet fever scare, an' who
  Came mighty near not pullin' through,
  An' who had light attacks, an' all
  The things that int'rest, big or small;
But here you'll never hear of sinnin'
Or any scandal that's beginnin'.
We've got too many other labors
To scatter tales that harm our neighbors.
