Farmer Brown's Tragic Death.

Sad the fate of
    Farmer Brown
Who came home last
    Night from town,
Almost midnight
    E're he got
With his milk pail
    In the lot.
"So Bossy" said he
    To the mule
As he sat down
    On his stool,
"So B___" then no
    More he said,
For poor farmer
    Brown was dead.
