DR. BOLI’S METRICAL HISTORY OF INVENTION.

No. 1.—The Great Fan.

There once was a man
Who called himself Stan
With a marvelous plan
For a thirty-foot fan.
What became of his plot
I’m afraid I know not:
For he lived in a spot
That’s not terribly hot.
Instead of the tropics,
Where fans are hot topics,
He lived up in Iceland,
A perfectly nice land
Where no one demanded
To be briskly fanneded.
If they thought him a crank,
He’d the climate to thank.

    Now it’s terribly hot
    In that Icelandic spot
    The volcano now spews
    Hot ash over you’s
    So good for old Stan
    He’ll be needing that fan

  2. Martha says:

    So that is the man
    Whose nefarious plan
    Produced the giant fan
    That our airspace o’erran
    With volcano’s ashy van
    Let us all blame Stan!
