A Moral Alphabet/M for Millionaire

M WAS A MILLIONAIRE

who sat at Table,

And ate like this—

as long as he was able;

At half-past twelve the waiters turned him out:

He lived impoverished and died of gout.


MORAL:


Disgusting exhibition! Have a care

When, later on, you are a Millionaire,

To rise from table feeling you could still

Take something more, and not be really ill.
