To Euphrosyne

WITH MY CARTE DE VISITE

Fun, II - 23rd December 1865


I've heard EUPHROSYNE declare
  That handsome men, both dark and fair,
Are dear at three a penny.
  I've searched the world, and this I know,
That nowhere, at a price so low,
  Could I discover any.

Men ridiculed my folly, when
  I asked the price of handsome men,
And christened me a ninny.
  Till PHOCAS KAMMERER I tried,
And found the article supplied
  At twenty-four a guinea!
