"Pip-pip Girls!

As I was walking down the street

Because it couldn't walk down me

One day last week I chanced to

    meet

A German en-ee-mee

He had a notebook in his hand

    (not a sausage)

And I said "Eres' a spy! Wot O!"

So I gripped him by the collar

                and-

And-then- I let - him - go!

For he (ha! ha! he! he!)

Was bigger than me, you see.

So I thought it well to run

             and tell

The speshul constabularee!

                 Gr J.A. Smith

               Jan 7/1918
