  THE ZEALLESS XYLOGRAPHER  

DEDICATED TO THE END OF THE DICTIONARY

A xylographer started to cross the sea
    By means of a Xanthic Xebec;
But, alas! he sighed for the Zuyder Zee,
    And feared he was in for a wreck.
He tried to smile, but all in vain,
    Because of a Zygomatic pain;
And as for singing, his cheeriest tone
    Reminded him of a Xylophone--
Or else, when the pain would sharper grow,
    His notes were as keen as a Zuffolo.
And so it is likely he did not find
    On board Xenodochy to his mind.
The fare was poor, and he was sure
    Xerofphagy he could not endure;
Zoyphagous surely he was, I aver,
    This dainty and starving Xylographer.
Xylophagous truly he could not be--
    No sickly vegetarian he!
He'd have blubbered like any old Zeuglodon
    Had Xerophthalmia not come on.
And the end of it was he never again
    In a Xanthic Xebec went sailing the main.
