ODE TO "ORDERLY" STEVENSON By an Inmate tie boldlv went to the wars, he did! And he boldy shouldered his gun! Now--he's done gone and got married My! ain't we got fun! Once, he saluted the Gold Braids, And his orders were smartly done! Now--he's done gone and got married My! ain't he got fun! We cordially hail his commander, And greet her with a cheery remark: "If he doesn't obey his orders .... ! Well--it's a great life if you don't weaken !" "HE LIED TO US" You've all heard the talk about Eve-- Well, it'sthe same regarding our Steve. He went and got married-- For years he had tarried-- But he lied to us--"Oh, why did he leave ?" The Bachelors' Club, as you know,. In Avalon was formed years ago; Now Steve was a fixture-- Of that we felt real sure-- But he lied to us--"He's done tied the bow." The colleens and those that he knew Are all of them fee/ing real blue. He said, 'Tin a batcb; Don't consider me a catch." They moan "He lied to us as men all do!"
