The Lay of the Lonesome Lung – 101229593_p08

An illustrated poem depicts a man kneeling before the Pope in silhouette.

In Rome thus spoke the Pope:
“I’m glad to meet you, I assure you, sir
You are quite well, I hope?
No? Then I know just what will cure you, sir.
What, ho! Request our court apothecary
To bring some Wistar’s Balsam of Wild Cherry.”
