A particularly heartless piece of poetry


“There’s Lees the awful pessimist /
who treads upon your toes, /
gets in the way and every day /
recites his tales of woes.”

— Leonard Hussey

“Hussey, our waglet, has made up a particularly heartless piece of poetry, or rather a recitation with banjo accompaniment.”

— Thomas Orde-Lees
