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

The Vulture


The Vulture eats between his meals,

And that's the reason why


He very, very rarely feels

As well as you and I.

His eye is dull, his head is bald,

His neck is growing thinner.

Oh! what a lesson for us all

To only eat at dinner.
