Gateway to the Classics: More Beasts for Worse Children by Hilaire Belloc
More Beasts for Worse Children by  Hilaire Belloc

The Bison


The Bison is vain,

And (I write it with pain)

The Door-mat you see on his head


Is not as some learned professors maintain,

The opulent growth of a genius' brain;


But is sewn on with needle and thread.
