Lies About Bomolfeo

Bomolfeo’s lips are named Glome and Glammer

Bomolfeo can speak the language of a hammer

When you forget a thought Bomolfeo snuck in and took it

He’ll never queen a pawn he’ll only rook it

When Bomolfeo was  lad he hid in a ditch

And learned the secret named of Scree the witch

And if a good thing happens ever to you and me

He’ll turn it sour by calling on Scree.

–The Young Gentleman’s Guide to Truth an Falsehood and the Discerning of the Difference Betwixt, Sweet Phoenix Publishing, Shanghai 1901
