Category: Funny Banter Poems
       Classic humorous and funny poems in a playful, teasing, and good-natured way.


If there is a vile, pernicious,
    Wicked and degraded rule,
Tending to debase the vicious,
    And corrupt the harmless fool;
If there is a hateful habit
    Making man a senseless tool,
With the feelings of a rabbit
    And the wisdom of a mule;
It's the rule which inculcates,
It's the habit which dictates
The wrong and sinful practice of going into school.

If there's anything improving
    To an erring sinner's state,
Which is useful in removing
    All the ills of human fate;
If there's any glorious custom
    Which our faults can dissipate,
And can casually thrust 'em
    Out of sight and make us great;
It's the plan by which we shirk
Half our matu-ti-nal work,
The glorious institution of always being late.

                                            James Kenneth Stephen.
