Adventures of a Modest Man


_There is a little flow-urr_
  _In our yard it does grow_
  _Where many a happy hou-urr_
  _I watch our rooster crow;_
  _While clothes hang on the clothes-line_
  _And plowing has began_
  – _And the name they call this lit-tul vine_
  _Is just "Old Man."_

The Crimson Tide

Though his original area of literary interest was horror in the vein of H.P. Lovecraft, world events in the political arena influenced author Robert W. Chambers to tackle more topical subjects. In the thrilling action-adventure tale The Crimson Tide, an intrepid activist in New York fights back against an encroaching wave of Bolshevism.

      _Old Man, Old Man_
  _A-growing in our yard,_
  _Every spring a-coming up_
  _While yet the ground is har-rrd;_
  _Pottering 'round the chickens' pan,_
  _Creeping low and slow,_
  _And why they call it Old Man_
  _I never asked to know._
  _I never want to know._

  _Crawling through the chick-weed,_
  _Dragging through the quack,_
  _Pussly, tansy, tick-weed_
  _Almost break his back._
  _Catnip, cockle, dock prevent_
  _His travelling all they can,_
  _But still he goes the ways he's went,_
  _Poor Old Man!_

      _Old Man, Old Man,_
  _What's the use of you?_
  _No one wants to see you, like_
  _As if you hadn't grew._
  _You ain't no good to nothing_
  _So far as I can see,_
  _Unless some maiden fair will sing_
  _These lines I've wrote to thee._
  _And sing 'em soft to me._

      _Some maiden fa-hair_
  _With_ { _ra-haven_  } _hair_
         { _go-holden_ }
  _Will si-hing this so-hong_
    _To me-hee-ee!_
