You are bold, Brother Tyler
a Lewis Carroll parody
by Blackhawk

`Repeat, "You are bold, Brother Tyler,"' said the Redneck with the

Blackhawk folded his hands, and began:--

    `You are bold, Brother Tyler,' the young poster said,
      `And your politics have become very white;
    And yet you stand your logic on it's head--
      Do you think, at your age, it is right?'

    `In my youth,' Brother Tyler replied to the won,
      `I feared it might injure the sane;
    But, now that I'm perfectly sure there are none,
      Why, I do it again and again.'

    `You are bold,' said the youth, `as I mentioned before,
      And have grown atheistically fat;
    Yet you turned Nadar Green, so like a whore--
      Pray, what is the reason of that?'

    `In my youth,' said the sage, as he shook his dreadlocks,
      `I kept all my facilties supple
    By the use of this ganga--one hundred a box--
      Allow me to sell you a couple?'

    `You are bold,' said the youth, `and your positions too weak
      For anything tougher than Arthur;
    Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak--
      Pray how did you manage his anger?'

    `In my youth,' said his friend, `I looked at at flaws,
      And argued each case with my wife;
    And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaws,
      Has lasted the rest of my life.'

    `You are bold,' said the youth, `one would hardly suppose
      That your act was as shakey as ever;
    Yet you balanced a Christian on the end of your nose--
      What made you so awfully clever?'

    `I have answered three questions, and that is enough,'
      Said his pal; `don't give yourself airs!
    Do you think I can listen all day to such fluff?
      Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs!'
