That Which Distresses

Missus D. Precious
Wishes her tresses
Went with her dresses
So grand.

She never impresses
As her hair transgresses
Coalesces in messes

Missus D. Precious
Addresses her tresses
Cuts and represses
By hand.

Each gown that caresses
The bald Missus Precious
Is now matched by head-dresses
and bands.

E.M. Swift-Hook
