Excerpt

, monuments of woe.

[Illustration]

In the Baker comes, and snickers
When he sees the sugar-lickers.

[Illustration]

One, two, three! the brats, behold!
Into two good _brots_ are rolled.

[Illustration]

There's the oven, all red-hot,--
Shove 'em in as quick as thought.

[Illustration]

Ruff! out with 'em from the heat,
They are brown and good to eat.

[Illustration]

Now you think they've _paid the debt_!
No, my friend, they're living yet.

[Illustration]

Knusper! Knasper! like two mice
Through their roofs they gnaw in a trice;

[Illustration]

And the Baker cries, "You bet!
There's the rascals living yet!"


This was the bad boys' sixth trick,
But the last will follow quick.

LAST TRICK

MAX and Maurice! I grow sick,
When I think on your last trick.

[Illustration]

Why must these two scalawags
Cut those gashes in the bags?

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
