Henry King, Who chewed bits of String, and was cut off in Dreadful Agonies.
The Chief Defect of Henry King
chewing little bits of String.
At least he swallowed some which tied
Itself in ugly Knots inside.
Physicians of the Utmost Fame
Were called at once; but when they came
as they took their Fees,
There is no Cure for this Disease.
Henry will soon be dead.
His Parents stood about his Bed
Lamenting his Untimely Death,
When Henry, with his Latest Breath,
Oh, my Friends, be warned by me,
That Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch and Tea
Are all the Human Frame requires . . .
With that the Wretched Child expires.
Who told Lies, and was Burned to Death.
