Sadie and Maud

Maud went to college
Sadie stayed at home
Sadie scraped life
With a fine-tooth comb

She didn't leave a tangle in
The comb found every strand
Sadie was one of the livingest chits
In all the land

Sadie bore two babies
Under her maiden name
Maud and Ma and Papa
Nearly died of shame

When Sadie said her last-so-long
Her girls struck out from home
(Sadie had left as heritage
Her fine-tooth comb)

Maud who went to college
Is a thin brown mouse
She is living all alone
In this old house
