Excerpt

THE BASEMENT

When Fritz, the Janitor's bad kid,
Went snooping in the basement,
He found a rocket snugly hid
Beneath the window casement.

He struck a match with one fell swoop;
Then, on the concrete kneeling,
He lit the rocket and--she--oop!
It shot up through the ceiling.

[Illustration: THE BASEMENT]

FIRST FLAT

The Steiners on the floor above
Of breakfast were partaking;
Crash! came the rocket, unannounced,
And set them all a-quaking!
