Mary's Belongings (A Poem)

Mary had a little lamb
all fricassed with peas,
then a little lobster salad
and some energetic cheese;
A quart of hock to wash it down,
a taste of mountain dew - 
All those our little Mary had; 
and a little coffin, too.

I found this on a newspaper clipping glued in the front of a 1903 "The White House Cookbook".

(A comprehensive cyclopedia of information for the home by Hugo Ziemann [steward of the White House] and Mrs. F. L. Gillette; The Saalfield Publishing Company)

Thought it was cute
